Dictionary of Organs & Organists 



PUBLISHERS' INTRODUCTION: 



INTEREST in the Organ has developed enormously during the 
last few years, and some of the largest instruments in the world 
are being built at the present time. Hitherto, there has 
been no publication in existence attempting to keep a record, in 
concrete form, of the various changes that are constantly taking 
place in Organ construction. This, therefore, is the function of 
this publication, and although, at present, far from complete, is at 
least an effort to give, in a collective form, brief particulars of 
the principal Organs in the British Isles. 

Included also, are many special articles, written by trust- 
worthy writers, and, as an addendum is the " Organists' Who's 
Who," giving brief biographies of the leading Organists 
throughout the country. 

It can be claimed with sincerity, that such a collection has 
never before been issued, and is only done now with the help which 
we have received from the Organists and Organ builders, whose 
instruments are represented in the work. 

We have been at pains to make the lists, both of Organs and 
Organists thoroughly representative, and every endeavour has 
been made to secure full and accurate details for the publication. 
For the specifications and biographies, consent has been duly 
obtained, proofs submitted, and correction made. 

The issue of a book, ranging over so wide a field, necessarily 
absorbs a considerable amount of time, and we have to express 
some regret that, even before the pages leave the printers' hands, 
some few records, mainly of a personal character, are out of date. 
This was inevitable, but we think it well to mention the fact, 
believing our readers will judge of our efforts as a whole, and 
not condemn us because of unavoidable errors and omissions. 

We hope that the work will prove that the public appreciates 
the comprehensiveness and reliability of the publication, and take 
this opportunity of rendering our thanks to all who have in any 
way assisted in its compilation.

Dictionary of Organs & Organists 



A Brief History of the Organ. 

By The Editor. 

IN the following outline sketch of the organ and its history, it 
is quite unnecessary to enter into details and technicalities 
of a more or less elaborate nature, as these can easily be 
met with by organists, students, and others by consulting the 
well-known works of leading experts on this subject ; also there 
are various technical, etc., matters of a special kind, which are 
dealt with elsewhere in this volume. 

The early history of the organ is both remote and obscure. 
The earliest records we have are of a somewhat classical nature. 

Vitruvius alludes to an instrument blown by wind hydraulicon 
or hydraulic organ ; also Athenaeus mentions a kind of water organ 
instrument. In a treatise on Pneumatics by Hero of Alexandria, 
there are both fairly clear descriptions and drawings of pneumatic 
and hydraulic organs. This early record is, if authentic, somewhat 
remarkable, as in the said drawings the pipes appear arranged 
much in the same way as seen to-day. At Constantinople, on the 
Obelisk of Theodosius (fourth century), there is a piece of carving 
representing an instrument with pipes. There are also shown the 
figures of two men standing on bellows, thus appearing to furnish 
the instrument with the necessary wind pressure. 

Organs of the above primitive kind began to be first used for 
public worship, it is supposed, some time during the latter part of 
the first thousand years after Christ, but the notes could only have 
been sounded one at a time, and must have been a very slow and 
laborious task for the organist or operator, as the keyboard does 
not seem to have been invented until some time afterwards. The 
notes only numbered about ten, but as time elapsed each note had 
several pipes attached to it. No keyboard appears to be mentioned 
in what is supposed to be about the earliest treatise on organ 
construction, a work by the monk Theophilus, in the early part of 
the eleventh century, though much of the text is unintelligible. 



8 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

In the early organs with keyboards, the keys appear to have 
been of great length, and about three inches broad, and required, 
it is said, pummelling with the fist to make the keys go down. 
It is thus probable that the chief use they were put to would be 
merely to sound the notes for the Plainsong. About the first 
mention of a keyboard was one consisting of 16 keys, in Madgeburg 
Cathedral, about the end of the eleventh century. It is believed 
that narrow keys, and the shorter semitone ones, were first intro- 
duced during the fourteenth century, though there is no certainty 
upon this point. 

In many cases the naturals were of a black colour, with white 
short keys the reverse as in use now though there are numerous 
examples of the above still extant in Great Britain and on the 
Continent ; as also there are harpsichords having black keyboards- 
The church at Heiligenblut, in the Tyrol, owns, or did own, a very 
curious organ. It consists of two manuals, one manual having 
black naturals and white semitones, and the other manual vice 
versa ; also iron levers, moving right and left, operate the stops. 

The method of blowing about the time of the introduction of 
keyboards was similar to so many magnified kitchen bellows 
with a valve. A man had charge of a couple, which he had 
to work with his feet and weight, holding on to a bar above 
with his hands the while. 

The mode now in general use in Germany is but a development 
of the above with certain modifications, etc., the bellows having 
diagonal hinges, etc., whereas the British system of horizontal 
reservoirs and feeders has far superior advantages. There was 
nothing at the above early time of the nature of stops. All the 
pipes in connection with any one note sounded whenever that note 
was used, the apparent object of this being to give a powerful and 
dominating character to these single notes, and thus making them 
acting and important factors in leading the church song. Whilst 
the notes of these early organs were few, and each note had a 
multiplicity of pipes, the system of forming a chord on each note 
originated, and we have a kind of survival of this in our modern 
mixture stop. 



A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ORGAN. 9 

It was not until about the fifteenth century that the invention 
of the pedal came about, and soon after this the Continental, and 
especially the German organs, began to assume generally a form 
similar in many respects to that in vogue up to recent times. 
England was some hundreds of years behind the Continent in 
adopting pedals, and before the nineteenth century, at which time 
they became more generally used, a lighter voicing and absence 
of heavy bass were noticeable features with the organs of this 
country. Many of these ancient organs possessed handsome cases 
of most ornate pattern, and there are some fine examples of these 
old cases still extant, especially on the Continent. 

During the Revolution in the seventeenth century most of the 
organs in England fell a prey to the zealous fury of the Puritans 
and were destroyed, but at the Restoration of the Stuarts came 
a busy time for organ builders in replacing these, and as a natural 
consequence of the reaction following the rigid Cromwellian rule, 
organs were being required all over the country. Bernard (or 
Father) Smith, a German, and Thomas and Rene Harris, French- 
men, were in most repute at this time, and their work has borne 
the test of time to a wonderful degree. 

The invention of the swell, with the peculiar quality of the 
English swell reeds as a natural accompaniment to its development, 
was the work of the two Jordans, father and son, and marks the 
first important step in English organ construction. It was first 
used in an organ for St. Magnus' Church, near London Bridge, 
about the year 1712. 

Most of the old " Echoes " of the German and Continental 
builders were gradually transformed into " Swells " during the 
eighteenth century, and the rule soon became almost universal 
as regards England. 

There is a man named Hancock who is mentioned about this 
time as a good " reed voicer," and who worked with one Crang 
*n changing the old " Echoes " into " Swells." 

It was not until about the middle of the nineteenth century 
that the compass arrangement in vogue in England (F, or G, to 
tenor c or d) was superceded by the German one of two and a half 
octaves (C f). The great advantage of this was that it enabled 



10 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

the practical study of such classical organ works as belonging to 
Bach and Mendelssohn, etc., which before the change had been 
impossible. 

About this period we have that most useful mechanical inven- 
tion by Bishop, an English organ builder, for conveniently dealing 
with groups of stops the Composition Pedal. 

As to the general mechanical action of the organ, this was 
improved about the year 1850 by the introduction of the pneumatic 
lever into many of the larger instruments, and the further later 
improvements of Willis practically revolutionised the whole 
mechanism of the organ. 

Now, in our modern march of progress, we have the tubular- 
pneumatic and electro-pneumatic, etc., actions, various mechanical 
blowing apparatus in place of manual labour, the somewhat 
bewildering array of couplers, composition pedals, .pistons, and 
other valuable and otherwise adjuncts, that it seems as though 
the day may not be far off when we may see the " mechanical " 
organist push his " flesh and blood " brother off the stool. 

In conclusion, it would appear that the English organ builders, 
with their national slowness and conservatism, preferred (or were 
perhaps otherwise incapable) to learn thoroughly the fundamental 
points from their Continental brothers to being pioneers, but they 
have not neglected opportunities to improve upon those points, 
and are to a degree in many respects ahead of their original in- 
structors, and the English organ of to-day is probably all round 
superior or at any rate equal to that of any other country.

PNEUMATIC TRANSMISSION. 



By Professor Dr. Bedart, University of Lille. 

TUBULAR-PNEUMATIC TRANSMISSION BY EXHAUST. 

THE prototype of this interesting system was realised in 
France by Moitessier, organ builder of Montpelier, for the 
46 stops organ of Notre Dame de la Dalbade, Toulouse, in 
1847. His patent dated from 1840 ; it was the exhaust system, 
now commonly used by all organ- builders ! 

Moitessier called it " abrege pneumatique " (abrege in French is 
the name of set of rollers transmitting key motion to pallets), and 
thus describes it : " All backfalls and rollers are replaced by tubes 
each key having its particular tube. This tube opens under a 
piston running into a small cylinder cut out of a solid piece of 
wood ; the piston is affixed by a sticker to the pallet of the 
wind chest, and the spring of the pallet combined with the wind 
pressure keeps the piston in upward position corresponding 
to the closed pallets/' 

The tube was, at its other end, in communication with the 
air by an open valve ; but as soon as the key was depressed, 
this valve was closed and the tube put in communication with an 
exhaust chamber ; therefore, the under face of the piston being by 
the tube in communication with attenuated air, the piston by the 
atmospheric pressure, acting against its upper face, went 
down and opened the pallet. 

This organ of la Dalbade, Toulouse, was a large three manual 
with 46 speaking stops. It was inspected by the committee 
on the 18th February, 1850, and lasted for 38 years, being in 
1889 overhauled and refitted by Puget with the Barker lever 
to each manual and electro-pneumatic action to the pedal. 

The workmanship of this organ was a masterpiece of joinery, 
but with time the wood cylinders did not remain quite true 
with the pistons ; there was a great loss of power, the pistons not 
being airtight. As Dr. Hinton tells us (in his lectures delivered 
for the Royal College of Organists, 1901), if " Moitessier had only 
covered the upper end of the cylinders with a bit of leather tied fast, 
like paper on a jam-pot, he could have got more power from the 
motor thus formed." Notwithstanding, this prototype of 
tubular pneumatic organs, conceived in 1840, and built in 1850 
by Moitessier, worked in good order for 30 years at least, before 
being overhauled 38 years after its erection, and is quite an historical 
organ. 



12 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

TUBULAR-PNEUMATIC TRANSMISSION BY COMPRESSED 

AIR. 

In the year 1854 Galy Cazelat in France, and I,. Clarke in 
England, made applications for a patent concerning a device for 
moving (by compressed or attenuated air through long tubes,) tin 
boxes containing letters or small parcels. In 1859 Doctor Upham, 
of Boston, succeeded in transmitting for a distance the heart 
beat for physiological demonstrations by tubes containing air ; 
but in the same year Tcepffer and Shoedel in Berlin were building 
house bells in which, instead of pulling down the ordinary bellrope, 
the bells were put in action by a tube containing compressed air. 
In 1858 Professor Ch. Buisson, in Paris, transmitted move- 
ments of heart to a distance with the aid of a lead tube filled with 
water, but after I860, he used air instead of water with greater 
success, with the collaboration of Marey, the future inventor of 
chromo-photography and the cinematograph. 

It is not until 1864 that we find the application of this mode of 
transmission to organs ; the first trial was performed by Peschard, 
during his researches upon electricity applied to organs. Peschard 
(a rich amateur organist of Caen, lyL.D.) began about the year 
1860, to lift the introduction valve of the Barker lever, by the action 
of an electro magnet ; in 1862 he tried the action of electro 
magnets not directly upon the introduction valve of Barker lever, 
but upon the smaller valve of an auxiliary (very small) Barker lever, 
which governed the introduction valve of the great Barker 
lever acting the pallets of channels. He used for this purpose, not 
only an electro magnet, but also a " membrane at the end of a 
tube for pneumatic transmission," as Professeur Marey used for his 
then far-famed physiological experiments. But Peschard left air 
transmission for electro-pneumatics, and from his collaboration 
with Barker were built the electric organ of Salon Bouches du 
Rhone in 1866, St. Augustin, Paris, 1868, and Montrouge 1869, 
this latter being destroyed by the bombardment of 1870. 

In 1867 Fermis, a schoolmaster in Hauterive (near Toulouse, 
France), erected in the Church of Foix, Departement de 1'Ariege, a 
large 28 stops organ with a complete system of tubular action. 
Fermis knew very well the Moitessier exhaust tubular system in 
la Dalbade's organ, and took rather the counterpart by using 
compressed air. The keys opened valves introducing wind 
into tubes, by which the bellows of an ordinary pneumatic Barker 
machine were inflated ; it is the system by inflation, with the 
outside pneumatic motors. 

Now the pneumatic motors are put inside the wind chest, and 
are flattened by deflating, when the tubular action lifts the valve 
giving communication with the air. 

Fermis had exhibited the swell of Foix organ in the 1867 Ex- 
hibition, and Dr. Hinton in his " Organ Construction " reports 



PNEUMATIC TRANSMISSION. 13 

(page 114) that " Mr. Henry Willis was much struck by a system 
of tubular pneumatics which was introduced in an organ shewn at 
the Paris Exhibition of 1867, and, thus stimulated, turned his 
energies to developing an improved form of tubular work, and 
turned into a new and definite school of organ building." 

This historical organ of Foix is still in good order, and has 
not been repaired since its erection. It is under survey of Th. 
Puget, the well-known French organ builder of Toulouse, who writes 
that this tubular action, although not possessing the quickness in 
answering of our modern tubular, is a tolerable one after 40 years, 
being only a great wind " eater/' In 1869 Fermis built a 
similar organ for the Black Friars, Oudinot Street, Paris, which 
was still in good order in 1904. Associated with Percy, Fermis 
built in 1878 the large 66 speaking stop in St. Frangois Xavier, 
Paris, which stands as a fine organ, artistically played by 
Marty, the blind organist. Cavaille Coll interposed a pneumatic 
lever between the keyboards and the chest supplying wind to tubes 
inflating the outside primitive motors, so the original tubular part 
built by Fermis remained unaltered. This organ is also a great 
wind " eater," wanting five blowers with foot-treadles 1 

Consequently in tubular pneumatic transmission, the names of 
Moitessier, (La Dalbade's Toulouse organ, 1850 exhaust system), of 
Fermis' (organ in Foix Church, 1867 inflation system), ought to 
be retained. 

ELECTRO-PNEUMATIC TRANSMISSION. 

After the early experiments of H.*'J. Gauntlet (1852), who 
inserted in his patent these words including the germ of all that 
has since been realized in electro-pneumatics : " The apparatus 
known as pneumatic lever may be worked with magnet and armature,'' 
the definite results were attained by Dr. Albert Peschard, of Caen, 
who began his experiments in electro-pneumatics in 1860, and 
early in 1861 communicated his discoveries to Barker. Born in 
1836, Peschard died in 1903. 

It is surprising that the name of Peschard is not mentioned 
in Robertson's Practical Treatise of Organ-Building ; Hopkins 
also never speaks of Peschard's important discoveries. 

Peschard's name, as remarks Dr. Hinton in his " Story of the 
Electric Organ " (1909), was first brought before the English public 
in a leader upon " Electric Organs " which appeared in the Musical 
Standard (May 23rd, 1891) : " The honours of combined electricity 
and pneumatics must remain divided between the Frenchman 
Albert Peschard and the Englishman Charles Barker." 

In 1892 Peschard published a pamphlet entitled : The 
Electric Organ is not an American Invention (Paris Larousse, Editor). 
It was an answer to the dicta orSchmoele and Mols returning from 



14 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

Philadelphia and claiming to be the inventors of electro-pneumatic 
system. 

M. Peschard was entitled to do so, for, with the collaboration 
of Barker, he had built in 1866 the organ of St. Laurent Parish 
Church in Salon, near Marseilles, quite a remarkable electric organ, 
for actually forty-six years after its opening (1912) it is in good 
order, working upon the primitive electro-pneumatic apparatus, 
only cleaned in partial repairs of 1893 and 1904. Many lovers of 
organ music have heard in St. Augustin the famous organist Gigout ; 
from 1868 to 1898 he played the organ, built by Peschard and 
Barker with electro-pneumatic system that is, an electro magnet 
controlling the escape valve of a pneumatic motor put inside the 
chest. 

Since 1862 Peschard and Barker had conceived this combination 
of pneumatic lever and of electricity, and in 1864 Peschard obtained 
a patent for the action of an electric magnet upon a valve covering 
a multi-perforated surface and allowing a very small raising for the 
valve ; consequently the Hope- Jones improvement was not a new 
one. 

In 1869 they introduced in the organ of St. Pierre de Montrouge, 
Paris (destroyed by shells during the Commune, 1870), the com- 
bination of a very small pneumatic lever (governing the valve of 
the great pneumatic bellow acting the pallet), the electro magnet 
had only to move the tiny valve commanding the auxiliary small 
pneumatic lever ; and in 1862 Peschard had tried a sequel of 
four pneumatic levers, of decreasing size, from the chest-pallet to 
the electro magnet. Consequently the trial of a series of pneumatic 
levers " in cascade," as well as their application in the organ of 
Montrouge in 1869, is not an American one ; Peschard and Barker 
found and applied with success the disposition on which all 
the electro-pneumatic systems have been built, with slight varia- 
tions.

English Organ-Cases. 

By Andrew Freeman. 



IT is quite impossible in a short article to deal at all adequately 
with this subject, for in spite of the regrettable fact that only 
about one in every fifty organs in England possesses a case 
of any merit, the majority of the others being little better than 
eye-sores, yet England is such a land of organs that the number 
of good organ-cases, some of them really beautiful, is by no means 
inconsiderable. Happy to relate this number is added to each 
year, thanks to the interest now taken by many of our ablest 
architects in this so long neglected branch of ecclesiology. 

No one will contend that our English cases can compare in 
majestic grandeur with such Continental specimens as Bois-le-Duc, 
Chartres, Tarragona or Lubeck (Marien-Kirche), and, sad to say, 
none can lay claim to the antiquity of Salamanca (Old Cathedral, 
c. 1380), Sion (c. 1390), and at least a score of other well-known 
organs dating from the Fifteenth Century. But in respect of 
perfect proportions, variety in design, exquisite carving and skilled 
workmanship that is, in all except size and age, many English 
cases will hold their own. Where shall we find more beautiful cases 
than those at King's College, Cambridge, [58 and 59] St. Paul's 
Cathedral, Little Bardfield [69], or All Hallows, Barking [66], to 
mention four only of the older ones ; or the Sheldonian Theatre 
[75], and Brasenose College [74] (both at Oxford) ; St. Bartholo- 
mew's, Armley ; St. Paul's, Burton-on-Trent ; St. Mary's, Notting- 
ham [56] ; or the Parish Church, Stratford-on-Avon, amongst 
those constructed during the last fifty years ? It would be quite 
easy to extend this list to some three or four dozen without 
including in it any but really fine cases. 

The inferiority in size of the older English cases was due to a 
combination of circumstances, chief amongst which were the 
smallness of the instruments themselves, the comparative lowness 
of the roof of the majority of English churches, and the place in 
which the organ was situated. 

The first of these no longer holds, but for centuries English 
organ-builders were much behind those on the Continent in develop- 
ing their art. No English organ contained more than two manuals 
until after the Restoration of 1660 ; few of them had pedals till 

NOTE. The numbers enclosed in square brackets refer to the illustrations. 



16 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

about the year 1790, 1 while the earliest to have a 32ft. stop was 
that at York Minster (1829), and the first with a 32ft. front that at 
Birmingham Town Hall (1834). On the Continent we find a com- 
plete instrument erected in the Church of St. Martin at Danzig, in 
1585, consisting of three manual and two pedal departments, with 
a total of 55 sounding stops (including one of 32ft.). Pedals cer- 
tainly date back to 1468 (St. Sebald, Nuremberg), and probably to 
1418 (Beeskow, near Frankfort-on-Oder), whilst 32ft. pipes formed 
the front of the Halberstadt instrument as long ago as 1361. A 
hundred years ago it was a rare thing to find an English organ with 
more than 30 stops. Both at St. Paul's Cathedral and at York 
Minster, the organ contained only 27 stops, with no separate pipes 
to the pedal " pull-downs " ; that at Westminster Abbey had an 
octave of Pedal Pipes, but only 21 manual stops. 

Nowadays large organs with a plentiful supply of 16ft. and 
32ft. pipes are fairly common, and the newer cases show an increase 
in size which is often considerable. None, however, are to be found, 
even in Concert Halls, which will compare in size with the large 
foreign cases before mentioned. The reason for this can, perhaps, 
be made clear by an example : 

The Church of St. Margaret, Westminster, standing in the 
shadow of the Abbey, looks small by comparison with its mother- 
church. It seats about nine hundred and fifty, and is therefore a 
fair specimen of the average parish church. But this church, tower 
and all (the latter 85ft. high) could easily stand under the Abbey 
roof, which reaches to a height of 101 feet above the pavement 
being, in fact, the highest vault in England. Yet the Bois-le- 
Duc organ, which is 40 feet wide and (with its gallery) 100 feet 
high, would not stand at the west end of the Abbey, unless taken 
out of its gallery, and even then it would be two feet too wide for the 
Abbey nave. 3 The Bois-le-Duc case is certainly the largest in the 
world, and, curiously enough, the largest of its front pipes is only 
24ft. speaking length ; but other large cases, containing 32ft. 

1 There is one isolated and remarkable instance the organ built by 
Robert Dallam for Jesus College Chapel, Cambridge, in 1634, at a cost of 
200, and to which, according to the Dictionary of National Biography, " in 
1635 he added pedals ... for 121." These, however, may possibly 
have been pedals to work shifting movements. Another instance, much 
later in point of time, was St. Paul's, for Burney, writing in 1785, tells us 
that Handel, upon his first arrival in England, frequently went " to play 
on that organ for the exercise it afforded him in the use of the pedals." This 
shows that there were pedals at St. Paul's as early as c. 1710, or very little 
later, but there were no separate pedal pipes there till 1826. At Westminster 
Abbey, Avery added pedal pipes in 1780 apparently the first in England. 

2 The height of the vault of several of our Cathedrals is given for the sake 
of comparison with some typical foreign churches York, 99ft. ; St. Paul's, 
89ft. ; Ripon, 88ft. ; Peterborough, 78ft. ; Chester, 75ft. ; Ely, 72ft. ; 
Rochester, 55ft. ; Amiens, 140ft. ; Palma (Majorca), 140ft. ; Chartres, 122ft. ; 
St. Jan, Bois-le-Duc, 120ft. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 17 

fronts, are frequently to be found on the Continent, some of them 
approaching very near to it in point of size. Most of them 
are very shallow, this one being only about 10 feet from back to 
front. 3 If one can picture it standing outside St. Margaret's, 
reaching to some 15 feet above the highest pinnacle of the tower, 
one is better able to imagine how much smaller its case would have 
to be made, in order that the same sized organ should be placed 
inside at the west end, over the entrance. Much more compression 
would be needed if it were to be placed at the other end of the 
church, in the north aisle, where the St. Margaret's organ is situated. 
And yet, previous to its being rebuilt in 1901, the Bois-le-Duc 
instrument had actually seven stops less than has that at St. 
Margaret's, the numbers being 41 and 48 respectively. The St. 
Margaret's organ displays a 16ft. speaking front towards the aisle 
not a very common feature of church organs in this country. 

This has brought us to the third of the reasons mentioned 
above the situation of the organ in English Churches and Cathe- 
drals, and its effect upon the size of the case. 

I believe that previous to the Reformation only two organs are 
known to have been placed at the west end of an English Church. 
One was so placed at Croyland Abbey (where there was a second 
organ in the quire) and the other in a small subsidiary building, 
namely the Beauchamp Chapel attached to St. Mary's Parish 
Church, Warwick. I believe, also, that there are very few instances 
of Cathedral organs being placed on the screen until after that same 
landmark in our history had been passed* the most usual position 
being on one side of the quire though organs in Parish Churches 
were usually placed in the rood loft, which was generally roomy 
enough to contain the small instruments then in vogue. At the 
Reformation the screens in Parish Churches were destroyed, and 
thereafter, until the Gothic revival of the Nineteenth Century the 
majority of parochial organs were set up at the west end, and of 
cathedral organs on the quire screen. During the latter half of the 
last century many Cathedral organs were removed from their 
commanding position on the screen and re-erected, generally on 
one or both sides of the quire, but occasionally in one of the tran- 
septs, whilst the ordinary church organ made a similar migration 
eastwards, usually to be buried in some wretched hole called an 
organ-chamber, on one side or other of the chancel. It is not my 
intention to make lamentation over the destruction of many splendid 
old cases during this period of transition ; in the first place because 

3 The large organ at the west end of the Marien-Kirche at I^iibeck contains 
82 sounding stops. The case itself is nearly 80ft. high and 40ft. wide, though 
only 7ft. in depth. In the Cathedral Church at Perpignan is an ancient 
organ (c. 1490) with a 32ft. front. Its dimensions are 45ft. high by 23ft. 
wide by 3ft. Gin. deep ! 

4 At Ripon, York and Durham, organs were placed on the screen, but these 
were not generally the chief instruments in use. 



18 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

it is no use, and in the second because it led directly to the designing 
and construction of such fine cases as those at Chester, Ely and 
Bangor Cathedrals, St. John's College, Cambridge, Nottingham 
Parish Church [56] and others. My purpose is to point out that 
the only position suited for a case of large proportions the west 
end of a cathedral church was never adopted here in England, 
and that if the quire screen or west gallery could not accomodate 
a large case the circumstances are even less favourable in the 
positions now chosen an exception being made where the transept 
position has been selected, and also where a new church has been 
specially designed to take and make the most of an adequate 
instrument. 

In fairness to our early organ-builders it should be said that 
the size of the organ was, to some extent at least, influenced by 
the position chosen. Wherever it was, east or west, on the screen 
or over the stalls, it was always near to the body of singers whom 
its chief purpose was to accompany. Consequently a large organ 
was not felt to be a necessity. 

Since the organ found its way into our churches in very early 
times certainly not later than A.D. 700 it may not be un- 
profitable if we attempt to show, in as brief a manner as possible, 
how the simple superstructure of early organs, hardly to be called 
a " case/' developed into the magnificent " fronts " which are 
sometimes to be met with at home and abroad. 

It is not possible to illustrate this evolution by means of re- 
productions of contemporary English organ-cases because, as has 
been said before, so few of our existing organs are really old, and 
none of them can be called ancient. Many modern cases, however, 
are founded on ancient models and can be used to illustrate certain 
typical features and periods of development. 

It should be stated here that the following attempt to trace 
the development of the organ case is founded almost entirely upon 
a careful examination of the seventy or eighty plates and a collation 
of trie dates in the accompanying letterpress in Mr. Arthur G. 
Hill's two splendid volumes dealing with " Organ Cases and Organs 
of the Middle Ages and Renaissance." So far as dates are con- 
cerned it should be noted that they are merely those of the organs 
in which certain features are earliest found. The features them- 
selves may have been, and probably were in many instances, found 
at earlier dates than those given. I have only given the earliest I 
have been able to ascertain. It is hardly necessary to say that the 
various features illustrated would scarcely have made their appear- 
ance in different countries at the same time. Due allowance must 
be made for the comparative isolation of certain provinces, or 
even countries, for local influences, and, especially in detail and 
ornamentation, for national characteristics which often led to 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 19 

complete transformation and much overlapping of styles . Moreover , 
one of the chief methods of determining the date of a case depends 
upon an examination of the style and execution of its carved 
detail a phase of architectural history much beyond the scope 
of the present article, and therefore only here and there hinted at. 
The difficulty of determining the date of a case is often increased 
by the substitution of later ornamentation in place of older work 
for instance of carved wings for folding shutters, of late Renaissance 
pipe shades for earlier Gothic tracery, or of storied campaniles 
above the towers for the former steeple-like roofs. 

Early organs possessed no case-work above the impost, if we 
except the simple band of wood which held the front pipes in 
position, taking the place of the rack-board so far as these pipes 
were concerned. In these primitive instruments the pipes were 
generally arranged semitonally and almost directly over the broad- 
keyed clavier. A faithful representation of such an organ has been 
preserved to us in the beautiful Cecilia panel, painted by the Van 
Eycks for the church of St. Bavon, Ghent, but now at Berlin. 
It was painted in the early part of the fifteenth century. 

As the compass increased and larger pipes were added, the 
pipes could no longer stand over their own keys especially when 
the latter were reduced in size. The natural consequence was that 
the upper portion was made to overhang the lower on either side.5 
Many examples of this most characteristic feature of Gothic organ 
cases will be seen in the accompanying illustrations. Most of 
Father Smith's cases once possessed it, and some of them still 
retain it in spite of subsequent alterations and enlargements. 
An example of its use as late as 1717 is found in Schreider's 
instrument still, happily, to be seen at St. Mary's Church, Finedon, 
Northants [70]. 

By providing such an organ with sides, back, a canopy above 
and hinged doors to the front to protect the pipes from damp and 
dust, we arrive at the first real organ-case. Though the upper 
portion would be similar in outline to a wardrobe, yet such a case, 
properly proportioned, with richly carved tracery above the -pipes 
and an open-work parapet along the top of the cornice, and with 
the whole of the wood-work enriched with painting and gilding, 
could be made to look very beautiful. 

The custom of gilding the pipes and cases of organs is a very 
old one. Adhelm, who died A.D. 709, tells us that the Anglo- 
Saxons frequently embellished their organs in this manner. 

The next step was to divide the pipes into compartments by 
means of buttresses or pilasters, and afterwards to break the line of 

5 An increase in the number of stops was the probable reason of a similar 
overhanging of the front, but this form of " hang-over " would obviously 
be later than the other. 



20 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

the cornice by making one or more of the compartments higher than 
the rest, forming flat towers. 

The Theddingworth organ [48] has an unbroken cornice, whilst 
those at Weybridge [50] and Stockcross [49] are examples of that 
type of case in which the cornice is irregular all of them, of course, 
quite modern in construction though early in style. The Thedding- 
worth instrument is one of the few in England provided with doors, 
these appendages being here adorned with pictures of angels playing 
on musical instruments. The ogee-form of the tracery here em- 
ployed was a characteristic feature of fourteenth century design in 
England, but in the earliest organs the tops of the pipes would 
not have been hidden by the tracery. The front pipes are 
gilt, with slight decorations about their mouths, and a diagonal 
band painted in red, blue, white and black. The central compart- 
ment contains five pipes, the other two, four each. The lower 
portion of the case is painted dark green and reddish brown, with 
stencilled patterns in black and white, with the text " Sing praises 
unto the I/ord " written along the front under the impost. Above 
the impost the case is decorated in white, red, light blue and gold. 
It was designed by the late Rev. F. H. Sutton (Author of " Church 
Organs, their Position and Construction "), who was vicar of the 
parish from 1864 to 1873, and about whom I shall have more to 
say later. 

The case at Stockcross is closely modelled on that in the Con- 
ventual Church at Sion, Switzerland (c. 1390), though it overhangs 
in front instead of at the sides, and, being of plain oak, lacks the 
picturesque doors and elaborate colour scheme of its prototype. 
The treatment of the outside of the gable over the central flat and 
of the crestings of the two side towers, and the arrangement of 
its front pipes are almost identical, but there is a considerable 
variation in the carved tracery beneath the cornices, that at Sion 
being much the lighter and richer of the two, while the under edge 
of the gable differs from that at Stockcross in being quite plain. 

The front of the Weybridge organ seems to have been modelled 
on two ancient cases the one in the Chapel of San Bartholome in 
the Old Cathedral at Salamanca (c. 1380) and the other in the 
church of San Petronio at Bologna (1470-5). In outline it resembles 
the former, but in the arrangement of the pipes in its three towers 
and in the treatment of its traceried pipe-shades (particularly in the 
engrailing of the lower edge of these to fit over the top of the indi- 
vidual pipes) it closely follows the design of the latter. (The ancient 
custom of leaving the pipes their natural length is to be seen in the 
Salamanca and Bologna examples but not at Weybridge, where 
the tops are cut so as to present a symmetrical appearance). The 
case is of oak and the pipes are of plain metal, with gilt decorations 
about their mouths and tops. It was designed by the late Mr. 
J. It. Pearson. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 21 

Still another early variety of case is the Bcchinswell one [51] 
which is distinctive of its designer, the late Mr. G. F. Bodley. Its 
front pipes, divided into three compartments, are of plain type- 
metal. Its wood-work is painted red and decorated in gold, with 
texts in red and black lettering on white scrolls. The pipe shades 
are of the simplest description, the carving being limited to the 
single line of cresting above the cornices of the canopies. 

Another of Mr. Bodley's cases is at the church of St. John the 
Evangelist, Cowley Road, Oxford (the Church of the Cowley 
Fathers) [54]. This is a " hanging organ," placed high up on the 
north wall of the church above the screen, and is rather more 
elaborate than the Kcchinswell one, having more carved work 
about it. The pipes are divided into four compartments, the two 
central ones being separated by a well-carved image of an angel. 
Being silvered, the pipes show up well against the wood-work of the 
case the latter painted green with stencilled patterns at the 
side in a darker shade of green, and with the pendant portion painted 
blue, the whole being relieved by a good deal of gilding. A graceful 
effect is produced by slightly curving the upper edges of the central 
portion of the cornice, instead of making them form a straight- 
edged V. It is not unlike the beautiful little hanging organ in 
the nave of the cathedral at Freiburg-in-Bresgau, built in 1515. 

The next step was the vertical sub-division of one or more 
compartments into two or more tiers, stories, or stages, of which an 
example occurs as early as c. 1420, in the organ at San Pablo, 
Zaragoza. Occasionally, the whole composition was thus divided 
into two well-marked portions, as at the Cathedral at Zaragoza 
(1413). Here the lower story consists of eight compartments 
six of them containing small pipes and the other two pierced 
tracery while the upper story is made up of five flats, three of 
which, standing higher than the others and forming towers, are 
surmounted by concave roofs, or steeples, 6 with crocketed ribs 
and finials. 

Another form of ornament triangular and semicircular 
pediments above the cornices of the towers made its appearance 
in the case at St. George's, Nordlingen (1466). In cases of later 
date these pediments were frequently " broken," as at Trinity 
College, Cambridge [see Frontispiece] and at Finedon Church [70]. 

A few words may here be said about the pipe-shades. When 
describing the Theddingworth organ-case, it was mentioned that in 
the earliest organs these shades, which were merely horizontal 
fringes or bands of tracery, were kept clear of the pipe- tops. Very 
soon, however, we find instances where they were made to follow, 

6 This is the earliest known appearance of these steeples the precursors 
of the campaniles of the Renaissance period. Palma Cathedral, Majorca 
(c. 1420), has five such steeples one above each of its three towers and t^ro 
intermediate compartments. 



22 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

more or less exactly, the rake of the latter,? while at least as early 
as 1413 (Zaragoza Cathedral) we find the tops of the pipes hidden 
by their means. The design of the carved work on these shades 
was, of course, determiued by the prevailing architectural style of 
the period and country. 

The lower extremities of the pipes were, in all early examples, 
placed so that they stood along the impost itself, and (a little 
later) along other portions of the frame-work parallel with it. 8 

The lines, curved or straight, formed by the mouths of a 
group of pipes were of necessity a feature in the design of every 
case. At first these lines were horizontal because the pipe-feet 
of each group (at the Old Cathedral, Salamanca) or of all the groups 
(at Sion) were of equal length. Very soon, however, they were 
made to form various angles with the impost, by making the foot 
either proportional to the length of the pipe (Amiens, 1429) or 
inversely so (Zaragoza Cathedral). The latter method was by far 
the most usual, and since the lines, or curves, so formed generally 
proceeded in a direction contrary to those of the lower edges of the 
pipe shades, the effect was greatly enhanced. Two of these methods 
can be seen in the case of the Stanford instrument [62] and the 
third in that at Ecchinswell [51], whilst all three are combined in 
the fine and elaborate case at Exeter Cathedral. 

Both the usual forms of pipe-mouth those in which the upper 
lip was pointed, or leaf-shaped, and those in which it was rounded 
(generally termed the " French " shape) were in use from the 
earliest times. The more ornamental types do not appear to have 
been used until the early part of the sixteenth century. 

With no other means than those that have been mentioned, 
namely, the horizontal and vertical sub-division of the front into 
compartments and stories respectively, the hang-over at the sides, 
the hinged-door, or shutter, and the infinite variety obtained by 
different methods of pipe arrangement and by the more purely 
ornamental additions in the form of elaborately- wrought carving 
and painted decoration, magnificent cases can be, and were, de- 
signed, of which those at the Marien-Kirche, Lubeck (1504), 
Barcelona Cathedral (1546), Tarragona Cathedral (1563) and the 
Church at Argentan (c. 1550) are probably the most splendid. 

But long before the possibilities of this kind of case had been 
exhausted, the resources at the disposal of the designer were in- 
finitely increased by the adoption of an irregular plan of impost. 

7 San Petronio, Bologna (1470), and its English understudy at Weybridge 
have already been mentioned. The custom of leaving pipes their natural 
length, and clear of the pipe-shades, lasted quite as late as 1657, the date 
of the elaborate and beautifully contrived case at Sta. Maria di Carignano, 
Genoa ; in fact, it may never have quite died out in Italy. 

8 The earliest known instance of making the line of their feet form an 
angle with the impost seems to have been St. John's, lyuneburg (c. 1550). 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 23 

Thus we find V-shaped towers at Chartres Cathedral (1475)9, large 
semi-circular towers at the Marien-Kirche, Dortmund (c. 1480), 
and a large three-sided breast at the Church at Wisel, near Cleve 
(c. 1490). 

A few examples may now be taken, from the large number in 
this country, to show how diverse are the forms which may be 
given to a case, of quite moderate dimensions but with an impost 
of irregular plan, without departing from the strict Gothic style. 

A small but complete Gothic case of considerable charm, is to 
be found above the stalls on the north side of the chancel of the 
Chapel of Jesus College, Cambridge [52]. It was built in 1849, 
and was the gift of Sir John Sutton, fellow commoner of 'the college 
and elder brother of the Rev. F. H. Sutton before mentioned. 
In all probability it was designed by the donor. It consists of 
two flats, of seven pipes each, separated by a V-tower containing 
five larger pipes, and has overhanging sides and hinged doors 
the inner sides of the latter covered with paintings of angels playing 
upon musical instruments. The pipe shades and the panels of the 
lower portion of the case are carved, and the whole is painted in 
shades of red and decorated with gilt. 

At the west end of the same building is a newer and larger 
organ [53] erected in 1885. Its elaborate case, added a few years 
later, is decorated to match the chancel organ. It has two angels 
at the top and carved wings at the sides. 

It may be worth mentioning that both these ornamental appen- 
dages had made their appearance on organ cases towards the end of 
the fifteenth century, the Hombleux organ (c. 1500) being one of the 
first known to display carved angels, whilst that at Strasbourg 
(1489) seems to have been the earliest to have side- wings. The 
last named adjuncts gradually superseded the picturesque folding 
doors, becoming in late Renaissance times much exaggerated in 
size. 10 

A still more ornate case is to be found in the Parish Church 
at St. Ives (Hunts) [55]. This organ is very curiously and excep- 
tionally placed above the screen, where it entirely blocks out the 
view of the upper part of the chancel. 11 The ingenious way in 
which the organ-front is made to embody the Holy Rood with the

excelled by one case only that at Bois-le-Duc. 

10 e.g. Aire-sur-la-Lys and Bruges (S. Sauveur). It is a curious fact that 
the original design for the Strasbourg case (which is still preserved) shows a 
painted, hinged door, outstretched, on one side, and one of the present pierced 
and carved wings on the other side evidently for the sake of comparison. 
(See the Musical Times for September, 1910.) 

11 At Stratford-on-Avon, where the organ is similarly situated only in a 
loft instead of on the screen there is much more room above the arch, so 
that the view of the chancel is not obstructed in the slightest degree. 



24 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

attendant images of the Virgin and St. John is worthy of notice. 
The wood-work of organ and screen is elaborately decorated in 
gold, white, and red on a green ground, and the general effect 
is rich, though with a tendency to gaudiness. The keys are not 
contained in the tribune which overhangs the screen door, but are 
placed in a detached console on the chancel floor. 

Sir Gilbert Scott's fine case at St. Mary's Parish Church, 
Nottingham [56], is another elaborate case with richly carved pipe- 
shades and wings, and brattished cresting above. It occupies a 
comparatively small space on the north side of a chancel that is 
none too wide, the upper portion of the case considerably over- 
hanging the lower in front and at the sides. Owing to its position 
the excellencies of its design are not at once apparent, and for the 
same reason, and because of its loftiness, a good photograph is an 
impossibility, if taken from below, as the accompanying one had 
to be. 

At St. Alban's Cathedral [57] a well-designed divided case 
stands against the wall, on either side, above the only complete 
ancient Rood screen still remaining in England. The two cases 
(which bear some resemblance to that at Strasbourg) are identical 
except that the mouths of the pipes in the north case are leaf- 
shaped, while those of the south are rounded a difference so 
minute that one is inclined to wonder why it was 'made. The 
cathedral is very light, so that the case with its new oak and plain 
metal front pipes scarcely shows to advantage a matter which the 
flow of Time will set right. 

In the spacious and lofty church of St. Michael and All Angels, 
Croydon [60], designed by Mr. Pearson, 12 there is another fine 
double-fronted case of Mr. Bodley's. The organ is splendidly placed 
in a chamber over the north aisle of the chancel, with a 16ft. front 
(divided into five flats) to the transept, and an 8ft. front to the 
chancel. The latter front contains two large semi-circular towers 
with several compartments of smaller pipes arranged in two tiers. 
The organist's seat is immediately under the front pipes, in a 
tribune that projects over the choir below him in the chancel. 
Here, at least, is to be found that ideal combination a splendid 
organ with a beautiful case, situated in the best possible position 
in a church with fine acoustic properties and no inconsiderable 
claims to architectural distinction. 

Many other fine and interesting organ-cases could be dealt 
with, did space permit, but at this point we must take up the tale 
of development with the oldest cases now left in England those 
which belong to the pre- Restoration period. 

All too few are these, but when one remembers how sweeping

piece at Truro. The vault is over 50 feet high. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 25 

was the destruction meted out to this form of church furniture 
during the Great Rebellion, and how many cases (beautiful and 
otherwise) suffered later on at the hands of the early Gothic revival- 
ists, the wonder is that a single one of these treasures should have 
been spared to us. Those that are undoubtedly of this period are 
at least ten in number, some of which (marked *) now stand in 
buildings other than those for which they were originally con- 
structed. They are : 

1. St. Stephen's, Old Radnor, c. 1500. 
*2. St. Lawrence's, Appleby, before 1571. 

3. Gloucester Cathedral Choir case only, 1579. (The remainder 

dates from 1663-5). 

4. King's College Chapel, Cambridge, 1606. 

5. Hatfield House, c. 1609. 

*6. St. Nicholas, Stanford-on-Avon (Northants), c. 1625 (possibly 

c. 1580). 

7. Dean Bargrave's organ at Canterbury Cathedral, 1629. 
*8. St. Mark's, Old Bilton (near Rugby), 1635-6. 
*9. Tewkesbury Abbey Church, 1637 (possibly c. 1580). 

To complete the list a small chamber instrument should be 
added : 

*10. A " Positive " organ known as " Queen Elizabeth's organ," 
1592, whilst one other organ-case has strong claims 
to be considered as belonging to this period : 

*11. Framlingham Parish Church (Suffolk), 1674, the case dating 
in all probability from c. 1550. 

All of these deserve more than passing mention, but our notice 
of each must be brief. 

The case of the organ at St. Stephen's, Old Radnor, [61] is 
undoubtedly the oldest now remaining in these islands. It has 
been exhaustively dealt with, and well illustrated, in the Rev. F. H. 
Sutton's " Church Organs." In dimensions it is comparatively 
small, being only 18ft. high, 9ft. 4in. wide, and 2ft. 6in. deep. 
Formerly a complete wreck, bereft of mechanism and pipes, it was, 
in 1872, most carefully restored under the direction of Mr. Sutton and 
fitted with a new instrument. The front has three V-towers, 
containing the larger pipes, and two flats each of the latter con- 
sisting of two tiers of small pipes. The lower part of the front 
and the whole of the sides are almost entirely covered with intricate 
and well-carved napkin-pattern panels. In the upper portion of 
the front there is a good deal of rich carving, particularly in the 
cresting. The latter, which extends along the whole of the top, 
is debased in style but exceedingly effective, consisting of a series 
of pinnacles, semi-circles, and grotesque animals. In addition 
to the usual Gothic features of overhanging front and sides, this 
organ had, and still has, an extension of the lower part of the case

at the back to give more bellows' room. Mr. Hill says that it 
appears to belong to the days of Henry VIII. 

There is good reason for believing that the case and front pipes 
of the organ now in use in the Church of St. Lawrence, Appleby, 
once belonged to the " one pair of organnes " which is mentioned 
in an inventory of Carlisle Cathedral, taken in 1571. The Dean and 
Chapter of the Cathedral, on the completion of their new organ 
in 1684, presented the old one to Appleby Church, where it has been 
ever since. It was first erected in the west gallery, when it was 
enlarged in 1746, but in 1863 it was removed to a chapel on the 
north side of the chancel. In 1891 it was again enlarged.^ The 
case itself is painted and is decorated with floral designs. Across 
the front, in gilt letters, is inscribed the text " Glory to God in the 
Highest." The three semi-circular towers are supported by large 
cherubs, while the cornices at the top of the case are gilded, and 
there is a cherub's head at each corner. 

Mr. Hill states that the choir-organ case at Gloucester dates 
from 1579. It is certainly much older in style than the main case 
above it, which was completed in 1666. The treatment of the 
tower cornices of the two cases is very different, those of the choir 
being surmounted by cresting of an essentially English type. The 
carving on the pipe shades of the smaller case evidently served 
as a model for the corresponding portions of the larger one. The 
two cases blend exceedingly well, and together form a front which is 
as excellent as it is typically English. 

The Chapel of King's College, Cambridge is divided into two 
portions, chapel and ante-chapel, by what is generally acknowledged 
to be the finest Renaissance screen in this country, above which 
stands a beautiful double-fronted organ [58 and 59]. Both fronts are 
kept low in the centre in order not to obstruct the vista more than 
necessary, the consequence being that the outlines are peculiarly 
graceful. There is a choir organ case above the screen door in the 
east, or chapel, front, which consists of a central V-tower, two semi- 
circular towers, and two connecting flats, with a crown above each 
of the semi-circular towers. The main case above it is similar in 
design, only the flats are much wider in proportion and the two 
end towers are larger than semi-circles. The latter are placed 
corner-wise, have crowns on their summits and are supported 
by curious bird-like men. The west front comprises two V-towers 
and seven intermediate compartments, of which latter the central 
one slightly projects. The two angels, with uplifted trumpets, 
which stand upon the two large western towers are modern restora- 
tions of an old feature in the design, the original angels having been 

1 3 These particulars are taken from Mr. Nicholson's Account of the Organs 
and Organists of Carlisle Cathedral, published in 1907. The description of 
the case is from information kindly supplied by Miss Mary Ridge, organist 
of Appleby Church. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 27 

supplanted early in the eighteenth century by two ghastly and 
cumbrous pinnacles. The small central flat is surmounted by a 
figure of King David with his harp. The pipes of all the towers 
(in both fronts) have inverted shades at their feet as well as the 
ordinary pipe shades above, those above being in some instances 
cut so as to fit each pipe a noticeable feature in later Renaissance 
work. The carving of these shades is thrown into relief by a back- 
ground painted green. The front pipes, now gilt, were formerly 
embossed and coloured. The case is of oak, dark, but by no means 
black, with age. 

The organ was originally built by Thomas Dallam, of lyondon, 
in 1606, at a cost of 214. The case, by Chapman and Hartop, 
cost another 156. The instrument itself has been enlarged and 
improved from time to time by I/ancelot Pease (a Cambridge man 
who added the choir organ, and, possibly, the choir case, in 1661) ; 
Thomas Thamer (of Peterborough) in 1675-6 ; Renatus Harris, in 
1686-7-8 and again in 1710 ; Avery, in 1804 ; and subsequently 
by Messrs. Hill and Son. 

One of the chief treasures of the unrestored (and therefore 
unspoilt) fourteenth Century Church of St. Nicholas, Stanford-on- 
Avon (Northants), is the unique organ-case which stands in a loft at 
the west end of the nave [62]. Unfortunately the whole mechanism 
is a complete and grievous wreck, the only internal pipe remaining 
being a large reed-pipe belonging to the " Bass Trumpet." It has 
been in this unplayable condition for years. Though it consists 
of but a single manual it has two cases, the smaller one, however, 
merely serving as a screen to the player. This pseudo-choir-case 
consists of a single row of dummy wooden pipes, arranged in three 
compartments, and painted to match the beautiful embossed and 
decorated pipes in the main case above it, while the flat pipe shades 
are covered with stencilled patterns in cream, in lieu of the usual 
carving. This smaller case blends well with the larger one, though 
it is much less elaborate both in design and finish, and is most 
certainly a subsequent addition. 

The three-sided central tower of the larger case is surmounted 
by a crown placed over a mitre which rests on a cushion with hanging 
ribbons these several emblems being effectively decorated in 
gold, red and blue. Above each of the semi-circular side towers 
stands a quaint little angel blowing a trumpet, while underneath is a 
cherub. The central tower is likewise supported by two cherubs. 

The case, which is of deal, was formerly painted. In the full 
glory of its original colouring, its appearance must have been really 
gorgeous. 

There are legends that connect this organ with the old Palace 
of Whitehall. One states that it was removed from Whitehall to 
Stanford during the Commonwealth, while another (and more 



28 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

likely) story is to the effect that it was presented by Charles II. to 
Sir Thomas Cave, of Stanford, who set it up in the church. The 
legends differ as to its original home, one mentioning the Banqueting 
House and the other the Chapel Royal. Though direct documentary 
evidence is at present lacking, I have some grounds for believing 
that the organ was originally in the Chapel Royal, that a choir organ 
was added shortly before 1638, that it was " embezled " during the 
Commonwealth, but recovered and set up in its original position 
in the Chapel in 1660, and that, finally, about the year 1663 it was 
removed, together with its loft, to Stanford, in order to make room 
for a new organ built by Father Smith. 

Mr. Hill dates this case c. 1625, but it is possibly much older 
than that, and c. 1580 would, in all probability, be not very wide 
of the mark. r 4 

During the cleaning of a room over the Cathedral Treasury at 
Canterbury in 1910, the workmen came across the remains of a 
small organ which is undoubtedly the one which the Dean and 
Chapter bought for the use of the Dean (Dr. Isaac Bargrave) in 
1629, at a cost of 22. It probably stood in the Dean's Chapel 
(destroyed in 1651), and was apparently lost sight of for some 
two hundred and fifty years. Pipes, key-board, and bellows have 
entirely disappeared, but the oak case, with its folding doors, still 
remains, as well as the sound-board and some of the action. There 
appear to have been eight stops, four on either side of the key- 
board, but only four of these remain. These are all on the left 
side, and consist of iron levers, which work by being moved from 
left to right. 

In the centre of the panel of each of the case- doors is a coat 
of arms, on the right that of Christ Church, Canterbury, and on 
the left that of Dean Bargrave. 

This interesting relic, having been carefully cleaned, has now 
found a home in the Cathedral Library. Its dimensions are 
height, 2ft. 2 Jin. ; width, 3ft. ; and depth, 2ft. 1 Jin. ; but the carved 
oak stand upon which the instrument is mounted brings the total 
height to 4ft. 7in., to which another two or three inches should be 
added for the feet of the stand, which have rotted off. 1 5 

In the years 1635-6 a new one- manual instrument with its 
case was built by Robert Dallam (a son of the Thomas Dallam who 
had built the King's College organ) for St. John's College Chapel, 
Cambridge. It contained six stops and cost 185. Thamar, who 

14 See Musical Times for November, 1911, for a fuller account of this 
organ and its case. 

15 For the above information I am indebted to a short account of this 
organ by the Rev. C. K. Woodruff, in the Canterbury Diocesan Gazette for 
January, 1911. Can there be more of these old instruments stored away in 
forgotten lumber rooms of our greater churches ? 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 29 

had charge of the instrument after the Restoration, probably added 
the choir organ case. 16 The organ underwent repairs from time to 
time, and was rebuilt and considerably enlarged in 1838 by Hill. 
In 1868 the organ was still further enlarged, preparatory to its being 
removed into the new Chapel, and at this period both the cases 
were discarded. The old Dallam case was purchased by the late 
Rev. H. O. Assheton, Rector of St. Mark's, Old Bilton, near Rugby, 
[63] where it was fitted with a new organ by Messrs. Nicholson and 
Company, of Worcester. Here, the case projects from the north 
wall of the chancel above the keyboards, the organ being placed in 
the vestry behind. Mr. Button, who supervised the fitting of the 
case to its new position was responsible for the " hang-over " of the 
front and for the three " spirettes " which adorn the cornices of the 
towers. Otherwise it was not interfered with except to restore 
it to its original shape which had been slightly altered in 1838. 
The Tudor Rose and Portcullis embodied in the pipe shades are 
emblamatic of the Lady Margaret, foundress of St. John's College. 
The case is of oak, picked out with gilt, and the front pipes (which 
have rounded and gilded mouths), are of plain metal, and the 
general effect is one of simple dignity. 1 7 

Tewkesbury Abbey possesses two organs, one of which is 
enclosed in a beautiful case of great historical interest. The organ 
itself was built by Harris (grandfather of Renatus Harris) for 
Magdalen College Chapel, Oxford, in 1637, but seeing that the 
instrument consisted of two manuals with thirteen stops, and that 
the amount paid seems to have been only 40, there is some 18 
justification for thinking that the case of a former organ was used. 
This theory is quite consistent with the style of the case, the details 
being very early Renaissance in character, not at all inconsistent 
with a date as early as c. 1580. The carving on the pipe-shades 
is very similar in design to that at Stanford. It also resembles the 
instrument in that place in the possession of beautifully embossed 
pipes, but is more fortunate in that it is in good playing order 
and in constant use in the services. 

It was removed from Magdalen College to Hampton Court 
Palace, by Oliver Cromwell, and restored to the College in 1660. 
Here, after repairs at the hands of Renatus Harris, chiefly in 1686, 

1 6 The curved plan of the two curtains of pipes which connect the three 
towers of this choir case seems to point to a somewhat later date, but extracts 
from the College account books prove that in the year 1669 there were either 
two cases (great and choir) or two distinct and separate organs. 

1 7 The Choir case, similarly fitted with a new organ, found a home in 
Brownsover Church, a mile or two the other side of Rugby, where its other- 
wise charming appearance is somewhat spoilt by some modern carving 
which was added to its lower portion. The original organ (much enlarged) 
at St. John's College was provided with new cases in 1888. These are Gothic, 
and were designed by Mr. J. O. Scott. Their effect is excellent. 

* 8 Compare this price with the 370 paid for that at King's College.

it was superseded by a new organ, and found a fresh resting-place 
on the screen at Tewkesbury Abbey, in 1737. Since it has been at 
Tewkesbury it has been rebuilt by Holland, in 1796, and, in 1848, 
by Father Willis. It now stands on the south side of the quire. 

A curious Positive of beautiful design and finished workmanship 
deserves a few words, though it is a chamber instrument, pure and 
simple. It is of Flemish origin and was constructed by B. Hoffheimer 
in 1592 apparently for the Earl of Montr ose, whose arms and 
monogram are worked into the exquisite carving. All the pipes 
are of wood and are elaborately carved so as to resemble a Scotch 
thistle. There is nothing to show that this organ ever belonged to 
Queen Elizabeth, though it may have been the property of 
Princess Elizabeth, daughter of Charles I., seeing that it was in the 
Isle of Wight where the Princess died for so many years. It 
is now in the possession of Mr. W. H. Head, who exhibited it at 
the Music Loan Exhibition, held at Fishmongers' Hall in July, 1904. 

The organ at Framlingham Parish Church, Suffolk, had, and, 
it is to be hoped still has, a double case. The main case came from 
the Chapel of Pembroke College, Cambridge, in 1707, for which it 
had been built by Thamar, in 1674. Here again there is some reason 
to believe that an old case was used up to contain Thamar's new 
instrument, for its style led both Mr. Sutton and Mr. Hill to ascribe 
it to the reign of Henry VIII., though it is only fair to add that Mr. 
Hill withdrew from this position upon learning the dates given 
above. In the second volume of his " Organ Cases," he has this 
to say, when dealing with this particular instrument : " It will be 
observed that old English organs generally appear to be of a con- 
siderably earlier date than is really the case, showing the contin- 
uance of older architectural traditions in organ building, after the 
styles had been more fully altered in regard to other branches of 
artistic woodwork." 

The chief features of this (main) case are the unusual form of the 
cornices of the three towers (two of them V-shaped, with a three- 
sided central one) which with two intermediate flats constitute the 
front, the quaint way in which the said towers are supported (a small 
full length figure under each of the end towers and five scroll-like 
brackets under the middle one), the two panels carved in imitation 
of a groined interior, the overhanging sides, the carving of the 
pipe shades, and the flowing diaper-pattern on the front pipes. 

The small case which serves as a screen to the player was 
originally part of the front of a former organ in the church, but 
whether of earlier or later date than 1660, I am unable to say. 
It is almost oblong in form, is filled with a large number of quite 
small pipes and some florid and well-executed carving. 

The number of organs which survived the period of the Com- 
monwealth was considerably larger than was at one time supposed. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 31 

but all, except those above named, seem to have met with an 
evil fate at one time or another. That which stood on the north 
side of the choir in Old St. Paul's fell a victim to the flames which 
destroyed the Cathedral during the Great Fire of 1666. It had a 
Gothic case with a crocketed gable and hinged doors, and, if we 
except small organs like Dean Bargrave's, seems to have been one 
of the last two surviving examples of an Old English case so pro- 
vided of which we have any record. The other was the organ built 
by Robert Dallam, for Jesus College Chapel, Cambridge, in 1634, 
and either rebuilt by Renatus Harris in 1688, or superseded by a 
new organ by the latter maker. 1 9 In 1790 it was given to Old 
All Saints' Church, Cambridge, where it remained until the destruc- 
tion of the Church about the year 1864, when it seems to have been 
broken up! Another organ, built by Robert Dallam, in 1632, for 
York Minster, lasted till 1829, in which year it was destroyed by a 
fire which did considerable damage to the interior of the Minster. 
Three others by various builders were supreseded at various dates, 
namely, that at Christ's College, Cambridge, about the year 1706 ; 
that at St. John's College, Oxford, in 1766 ; and that at Lincoln 
Cathedral, in 1826. Many others underwent similar experiences, 
but lack of space forbids even mention of them here. 

The numerous cases of organs which have been erected in 
England since the Restoration may, for our purpose, be divided 
into two groups, corresponding, roughly, with the periods from 
1660 to c. 1830, and from c. 1830 to the present time. The first 
of these periods, which commenced with many extremely fine 
Renaissance cases, ended most ingloriously, after a long period 
of decline in workmanship as well as in design, with a large number 
of wretched specimens in the debased Gothic style, whose appearance 
is suggestive of smugness cultivated to the point of sanctity. The 
second period began with the Gothic Revival, which was a crusade 
against the debased and crudely complacent erections which had 
long usurped the name of Gothic. Its originators founded their 
methods upon a careful study of ancient examples, and the training 
of skilled workmen in the lost art of carving. L,ike all other revolu- 
tionary movements, its early achievements were unfortunately 
marred by the irreparable damage wrought by its all-too-eager 
disciples, but whatever their mistakes and they were not few 
it is to the Gothic Revival that we owe not only our more intimate 
knowledge of the purer Gothic forms, but a proper recognition 
and appreciation of the best architecture of all styles and all 
periods. With English organ-cases of this latter period we have 
already partly dealt, and we shall have more to say after considera- 
tion of those which were constructed between 1660 and 1830, or 
thereabouts. 

* 9 See Note 1. The organ was taken down in 1642-3 and set up again at 
the Restoration. 



32 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

Considering that the building, repairing and tuning of church 
organs had been suspended for nearly twenty years, it is surprising 
to find how many organ-builders were plying their trade immed- 
iately after the return of the Merry Monarch. Amongst them 
were the three sons of old Thomas Dallam Robert, Ralph and 
George James White (partner of, and successor to the last-named), 
Preston of York, Thamar of Peterborough, Lancelot Pease of 
Cambridge, Robert Hayward of Bath, Robert Taunton of Bristol, 
and John Loosemore of Exeter. 

Through the kindness of my friend Mr. S. W. Harvey, I am 
able to reproduce a photograph of a beautiful and remarkable 
design for an organ-case belonging to the early years of the Restora- 
tion Period. This is none other than that built by Lancelot Pease, 
of Cambridge, for Canterbury Cathedral, in 1662-4 [64], The 
original is a sepia drawing, the work of one George Woodroffe, 
whose name appears in the right-hand bottom corner of the drawing 
in the writing of the period. Full particulars of this instrument 
will be found in the Organist and Choirmaster for August, 1908, 
from the pen of Mr. H. H. Battley, so that, space being limited, 
only a brief reference to it will be made here. 

Pease's agreement shows that the organ consisted of two 
manuals, Great and Choir, with thirteen and six stops respectively. 
The dimensions of the cases (for there was a separate- one for the 
Choir organ although it is not shown in the drawing) were Great 
case, 16ft. wide by 23ft. high " to the upper part of the Cornish " ; 
Choir case, 7ft. wide by 9ft. high by 3ft. deep. The cost was 650 
and the old Pre-Restoration organ which had been badly damaged 
but not destroyed in 1642 by soldiers under the command of 
Colonel Sandys, and which had been made playable, in some 
manner, shortly after the Restoration of Charles II. 

Pease's organ was placed on the north side of the quire, over 
the stalls, and, though the interior was replaced, or at least renewed, 
by subsequent builders, here it remained till it was superseded by 
Green's unsightly organ of 1784 the last-named being placed on 
the screen. 

This unique design may be cited in further support of Mr. 
Hill's remarks on the survival of the older architectural styles in 
English organ-case designs. (See above, under Framlingham.) 

The case of the famous organ which Loosemore built for 
Exeter Cathedral in 1665, still remains in its original position on 
the screen, though the two great towers of pipes which stood against 
the piers at either end of the screen were, unfortunately, taken away 
some years ago. These contained the largest pipes ever made in 
England until the introduction of pedal pipes, the largest one being 
20ft. 6in. speaking length. These pipes were of tin, and the towers 
which they formed were finished off with cornices similar to those on 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 33 

the main case between them. When these large towers were 
destroyed, all the other front pipes, which were also of tin, and 
many of which were beautifully embossed, were melted down. 
Notwithstanding these vandalisms, the case presents several points 
of interest, amongst which may be mentioned the treatment of the 
central flat tower of the east front, in which the middle pipe of the 
five which compose it is made to project beyond the others, the 
V-shaped additions to both bracket and cornice thus rendered 
necessary, adding considerably to the effect. The end towers of 
this front are larger than semi-circles, while all three towers of the 
west front are semi-circular. In both fronts the intermediate spaces 
are divided into tiers, but whereas the lower tiers are very similar, 
and both fronts have small circular compartments in the second 
stage, the east front has additional features in the form of two 
small towers placed high up between the circular compartments 
and the outer towers. The choir organ case which was at one time 
placed towards the nave has now been restored to its proper position, 
facing east. The instrument, which has overhanging sides, has a 
commanding appearance. The pipe-shades are cut so as to fit each 
pipe separately. The only point that can be urged against this 
splendidly executed, and in all other respects, finely designed case, 
is that the caps of the two circular towers of its east front are rather 
too heavy. 

Within a year or two of the Restoration of Charles II, 
the English builders above enumerated were joined by Thomas 
Harris, and his son Renatus (son and grandson, respectively, of the 
Harris who had built the organ now at Tewkesbury, already de- 
scribed), both of whom had been living and working in France for 
some years, and by the most celebrated of all these old craftsmen, 
Bernard, or Father Smith, a German (or according to others, a 
Dutchman). Smith, who brought over with him his two nephews, 
Gerard and Christian, seems always to have had plenty of work, 
but the Harrises were not so fortunate until the death of Robert 
Dallam, in 1665, and of his brother Ralph, in 1672, whereafter 
Renatus Harris became Smith's most serious rival. 

The cases of these two celebrated builders form a class by 
themselves, and will be so considered. 

Sir John Sutton, writing in 1847, 20 says : " The cases which 
were built by Schmidt, in the latter part of the seventeenth Century, 
are far better than anything that has been built since, for although 
the detail is not ecclesiastical, still the old form is kept up, and the 
general appearance is the same as those erected in Germany and 
Flanders, from the latter end of the sixteenth century, and the 
carved work is bold, and consists only of open work panelling in 
imitation of foliage and flowers, with large angels' heads, and at the 

20 in " A Short Account of Organs Built in England " (published anony- 
mously) pp. 96-7. 



34 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

present time, with the assistance of a hundred and sixty years, they 
really look very venerable, especially when they have diapered 
pipes, which is the case in the Durham Cathedral organ, and some 
others. ..." 

" The cases of Harris are much more elaborate than those of 
Schmidt, and many of the details are those which were in common 
use in fitting up the apartments of the court and nobility of France, 
during the reign of Louis the Fourteenth ; wreaths of flowers and 
indelicate fat cupids, by way of angels, with drapery used for every 
purpose but to cover their nakedness. It is needless to comment 
further on such ornaments, as it must be evident to everyone that, 
to say the least of them, they are very much out of place in a 
church, and offensive to the feelings of right-minded persons." 

This criticism, though not altogether unmerited, is rather 
less than just to Renatus Harris and his father. Several of their 
instruments have (or had) overhanging sides, amongst which 
those at St. Lawrence Jewry, and at St. Andrew Undershaft [65] 
may be named, whilst if the figures reclining above the cornices 
of the flats of the noble case at All Hallows, Barking [66], would 
be more accurately described as " Graces/' that distinction 
ought also to be conferred upon the two denizens of the upper 
regions who were similarly situated on the old case of Father 
Smith's at the Temple Church (removed in 1842, when the 
present Gothic case was substituted for it). Moreover, a large 
number of Harris's cases never possessed these angels, graces, or 
cupids (call them what one will), and though it is true that many 
of the carved emblems are not of an ecclesiastical character, yet, 
in common with those of Smith, the modest and dignified propor- 
tions of the cases, with their massive cornices, gilded pipes and 
excellent carving, go a long way to make up for any indiscretion in 
the choice of ornamental detail. 

The Temple Church organ-case, above referred to, does not 
seem to have come up to the same standard of high excellence 
usually maintained by its famous builder, but it presented the 
rather unusual feature of rounded towers, larger than semi-circles, 
placed at the angles. The treatment of the carving on the caps 
of the three towers was similar to that on the smaller organ, by the 
same builder, still to be found in Manchester Cathedral. 

In some respects the cases of Smith and Harris were similar. 
Their towers were never divided into tiers, though the intermediate 
flats, which were always straight in plan, were frequently made in 
two stories. The most usual form of tower was the semi-circular. 
Flat towers and V-shaped towers were less used. At Gloucester 
Cathedral, the central tower of both east and west fronts (which 
differ only in slight particulars) is almost identical in treatment with 
the central tower of the east front of Exeter Cathedral, already 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 35 

described. The main case was added by T. and R. Harris in 1665-6, 
and is one of the most beautiful to be found in any of our Cathedrals. 
(The small choir case was described earlier in the course of this 
article) . 

Instances of the use of two, three and four towers by each of 
these craftsmen remain. Their cases seem always to have termin- 
ated with a tower at either end, and never with a flat. Except 
when there were only two towers, the central portion was nearly 
always the highest, caused either by placing the largest pipes in the 
middle tower (or towers), or exceptionally, as at All Hallows, 
Lombard Street and St. Clement's, Hast Cheap, by putting a 
small central tower above a flat in these instances a large circular 
flat, which by no means improves the appearance of the case. 
These were exceptions to this rule, but they were few and far 
between, one that may be mentioned being that at St. Sepulchre's, 
Holborn Viaduct. 

So great was the variety obtainable by adopting various 
combinations of the three forms of towers above mentioned, with 
different treatment of the cornices of the intermediate flats, that 
it is safe to say that where a repetition of a design is to be met with, 
it was at the wish of the client and not because the designer had 
come to an end of his resources. 

Amongst cases so duplicated (none quite exactly) are those 
at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford (1680), St. Mary's University 
Church, Cambridge (1697), the Banqueting House Chapel (Royal), 
Whitehall (1699), [67], and Eton College Chapel (c. 1700). Of 
these, the first named, alone, has a choir case which has recently 
been restored to its proper place behind the organist, whilst the 
last is now at Hawkesyard Park, Rugeley, Staffs. Most famous 
of all is that which was removed from the Chapel Royal to the 
church of St. Peter ad Vincula, Tower of London, in 1890, where 
it still is. Nearly all writers on English organs have united in 
describing it as the first instrument built by Father Smith in 
this country, namely in 1660, whereas it was not built till the old 
Chapel Royal had been destroyed by fire, namely, in 1699. 21 

Harris's instrument at St, Nicholas (now the Cathedral), 
Newcastle-on-Tyne, was a curious instance of a double duplication, 
its front bearing a close resemblance to that at St. Sepulchre's, 
Holborn Viaduct, and its back being similar to that at St. Andrew's, 
Holborn two churches within a few hundred yards of each other, 
whose organs were also by Harris. 

The towers of both builders were supported either by a cherub's 
head (sometimes two or three were used) or by a bracket covered 
with foliated carving, and were finished off with a heavily moulded 
^cornice. Occasionally, as in two of the four towers of the old 

21 See Musical Times for September, 191 U 



36 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

portion of the case at Trinity College, Cambridge [see Frontispiece], 
the upper orders of the cornice moulding above a flat tower were 
left out, and a semi-circular pediment substituted. (The Trinity 
case was judiciously enlarged some years ago by the addition of 
an extra flat and a large tower to each end) . 

Frequently some kind of ornament was added above the 
towers, the crown and mitre (as at Christ Church, Newgate Street), 
vases with gilded flames (as at St. Clement Danes, Strand), and 
cupolas (as at St. Bride's, Fleet Street and at St. Sepulchre's). 

The last named instrument, built by Harris in 1670 or 1677 
(the date is variously given) was removed from the West End of the 
church to the North Chapel in 1891-2, when it was shorn of its 
cupolas and choir organ case, being at 'the same time considerably 
extended in width. It still retains the coat of arms over its central 
tower and the two winged " supporters," while the two angels 
(" indelicate fat cupids " !) continue to recline on the two halves of 
the broken, rounded pediment, which are placed above the two 
inner flats. 

The St. Bride's organ is more fortunate in retaining its west 
gallery position and all its adornments. In this case the pipes in 
the lower story on each side of the central tower are arranged in 
upright oval compartments, while the cupola on each of the side 
towers terminates with a mitre, and that on the central tower with 
a crown. 

The organ which Harris built in 1696 for St. Andrew Under- 
shaft, [65], had, before its removal to the east end of the south 
aisle, in 1875, in addition to the two angels above the cornices of the 
side flats, a singular erection above its central tower. For sheer 
exuberance of this species of cornice adornment, however, the 
same builder's design for the organ which he built in 1710 for 
Salisbury Cathedral [68] probably stands unrivalled. 2 2 Though little, 
if at all, larger than the generality of the most important cases of 
the period, being 20ft. in width, it sprouted to such effect that the 
crown on the top reached to a height of 40ft. Of all Harris's cases 
that I have met with this is the one that most merits the condemna- 
tion of Sir John Sutton, but apart from its excessive ornamentation 
and the unsightly excrescences above the towers, it is a very good 
example of its period, immeasurably superior to Green's miserable 
specimen of " correct " Gothic which succeeded it in 1792. Above 
the three towers of the choir case were three small figures, or 
statues. At least two other organs by the same builder still have 
similar figures above their towers. These are those built for St. 

2 2 An excellent reproduction of this design appeared in the Musical Times 
for February, 1903. Part of the organ, including the choir organ case, was 
used up in the organ erected by Green and Blyth in Helston Church in 1799. 
Thence it was removed to Shaugh Church (Devon), and later to Braunton 
Church, but the case has now entirely disappeared. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 37 

Peter Mancroft, Norwich (now placed in the south aisle of the 
chancel at Yarmouth Parish Church, where it forms the back 
of one portion of the divided organ 2 3), and King James' " New/ 
Popish Chapell," at Whitehall, built in 1637 (now at St. James'/ 
Piccadilly, to which church it was given by Queen Mary, in 1691J 
The central tower of the former is still surmounted by a fine 
carved statue of St. Peter, while the latter has no less than ?ix 
figures an angel blowing a trumpet on each side of the towf 
a larger one reclining above each of the two flats, and two 
more figures above the large central tower. These two case are 
both noble specimens of the craftman's art, the Whitehaa one 
having been carved by Grinling Gibbons. 

Large figures are also to be found on the truly mag/iificent 
divided case at St. Paul's Cathedral. Those above the maijjl towers 
were added by Sir Christopher Wren (who himself designed the 
case) in order to hide the tops of the long pipes which Father 
Smith had used, and over which architect and builder had Barrelled. 
These figures are placed in pairs, with an altar between them. The 
case is in the Italian Renaissance style, and adorned with some of 
the finest carving in the world, mostly by the master hand of 
Grinling Gibbons. It remained on the screen from its erection in 
1697 till 1860, when it was removed to the second arch on the 
north side of the quire, and temporarily robbed of its choir case. 
In 1872 it was divided, the original front, together with the choir 
case, being placed over the stalls on the north side of the quire, 
whilst the " back " case, for which a replica of the choir case was 
made, was set up on the opposite side. At the same time the 
sides of each of the main cases were fitted with pipes, so that there 
are now six speaking fronts. The choir cases are very similar to 
the large cases above them merely two flat towers with a flat 
compartment between and the front pipes are gilded. The present 
situation is ideal, and it is difficult to imagine the state of mind 
of anyone who would wish it altered in any way, or differently 
situated but who knows ? Vandals are a hardy species, and will 
probably outlive the poor ! 

Before leaving the cases of Smith and Harris, it may be men- 
tioned that the ornamentation of the cornices between the towers 
was not limited to the reclining angels instanced above. The 
upper edge was sometimes finished off with carved foliage (as at 
St. Mary at Hill and St. Clement Danes, Strand), but more frequently 

23 The case of the old Yarmouth instrument (by Jordan, 1733) does similar 
duty to the other half of the organ in the north aisle. This, too, has a large 
figure above its central tower. Curiously enough, the side towers of this 
case are surmounted by crowns, and of the St. Peter's case by mitres. Both 
cases are very much alike, only the Jordan case has its intermediate com- 
partments slightly curved. Jordan's case at Bath Abbey (1703) had large 
figures of King David, St. Peter and St. Paul. It was ruthlessly destroyed 
in 1838.

the ornamentation took the form of the more or less heavy scroll- 
work, of which examples still remain at St. Peter ad Vincula 
[67], Trinity College, Cambridge [see Frontispiece], and several 
other places. Of course, in many cases, the cornices both of 
lowers and of flats, consisted of plain mouldings alone, without 
any form of super-structure. A perfect example of a small organ 
of this type and period is to be seen at St. Katherine's, Little 
Bardfield, Essex [69] surely one of the most charming cases that 
was ever devised. It was built by Harris, and is said to have come 
to I/ttie Bardfield from Jesus College, Cambridge. It still retains 
nearl/,if not quite, all its original pipes, including a mounted cornet. 

For some time after the death of Father Smith, in 1708, good 
cases vere made by his son-in-law, Schr eider, his two nephews, 
Gerard and Christian, and their contemporaries, but few of these 
were up to the standard of the earlier master, and many cases of 
poor design crept in amongst them, and in increasing numbers. 

That made by Schreider, in 1717, for St. Mary's Church, 
Finedon, Horthants [70], is an exceptionally good one, and is 
still, happily, in its original position in the west gallery. Its two 
side towers, which are flat, terminate in broken, curved pediments, 
whilst the spaces above the lower compartments and between the 
three towers, are entirely filled in with two well-carved screens of 
scroll-work. The brackets which support the overhanging sides 
are also in the form of scrolls. In spite of successive alterations, 
much of the old pipe work, including the front pipes with their 
original decorations, remains. This organ has been ascribed to 
Gerard Smith by various writers, but Mr. A. C. Edwards, in his 
" Organs and Organ Building," is quite positive that it was built 
by Schreider. 

At St. Helen's Church, Abingdon, is another old case so like 
the main case of the Salisbury instrument, above described, that 
several writers have concluded that they are one and the same. 
This is not so, however, for the Abingdon instrument was built by 
Abraham Jordan in 1725, and in the contract for the rebuilding, 
which was entrusted to Byfield, England and Russell, c. 1780, it 
was expressly stated that the old case was to be retained. The 
Harris instrument remained at Salisbury till 1792. The gilded 
representation of King David and his harp once adorned the west 
gallery (where the organ stood till its removal to its present position 
in the south chancel aisle). It scarcely merits its prominent place 
on this fine old organ-case. 

Many other excellent cases could be described, but lack of 
space compels us to mention two only, the first a late, but exceed- 
ingly graceful one built by Richard Bridge for St. Andrew's Parish 
Church, Enfield, 2 * in 1753 [71]. The ogee-curve was a favourite 

24 The same design more or less exact, and sometimes with additional 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 39 

one in work of this period, and used with discretion, as at Knfield, 
was a means of beauty. (Its use in the plan as well as in the eleva- 
tion of the curtains between the towers should be noticed). A 
close examination of the carving enables me to testify to its excel- 
lence. Most of the internal pipes and mechanism of this instrument 
now form part of an enlarged organ nearer the chancel. Would 
that other equally beautiful specimens of well-designed and well- 
executed wood-work had been preserved in the same way ! Here, 
at Enfield, the back has been cut away and front of the case set 
back to within two or three feet of the wall, so that little room has 
been lost by the retention of this interesting link with past genera- 
tions of worshippers. 

A still later case, which though far inferior to the Enfield 
one, is still above the average for its period, is to be seen in the 
west gallery at St. Botolph's, Aldersgate Street, B.C. [72] It was 
built by Samuel Green, in 1778. Its worst points are the meanness 
of the cornices of the two flats, the inferior character of the carving, 
and the lack of skill shown in the management of the brackets 
which support the towers. A few alterations in the lines of the 
case, more particularly in those of the two ugly flats, combined 
with a richer form of carving, properly distributed, would make 
this quite a fine case. Its most noticeable features are the central 
group of three towers and the festoons which take the place of the 
pipe-shades of earlier cases. 

Similar groups of three towers were to be found in the organs 
in St. Alfege, Greenwich and in St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol the 
latter long since destroyed. 

At this point Sir John Sutton may again be quoted. He says : 2 * 
" Early in the reign of George the Third, attempts were made to 
restore the Gothic style, at least in the restorations made in old 
churches ; with what success may be seen by examining the stalls 
at Westminster Abbey, the Altar and organ screens at St. George's 
Chapel, at Windsor, and other works executed about the same 
period. Green, who was at that time at the height of his popularity, 
and was very much patronised by King George the Third, was obliged 
to conform to the prevailing taste, and began to engraft innumerable 
pinnacles and incorrect Gothic details upon his tasteless boxes. 
And their effect was, if possible, worse than the plain ones which 
preceded them. Many of our Cathedrals, College Chapels and 
Parish Churches, are disfigured by these unsightly organ-cases, 
which became every day larger and more heavy looking, and the 
ornamental parts resemble the barley sugar ornaments we see 
about Christmas time in pastrycooks' windows, displayed in all 
their glory on a twelfth cake. From time to time slight improve- 

ornament above the cornices was used for several other organ-cases of the 
period, for instance, at St. Margaret Pattens, E.G. 

25 " A Short Account of Organs," pp. 98-100. 



40 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

ments were made in the details, though they were injudiciously 
applied. Every part of a church has been copied for the organ- 
case, and attempts have been made at one time to make the organ 
look like a tomb, at another like a screen, at another the canopies 
of the stalls have been placed on the top of the organ, and latterly, 
as if in despair of producing any thing decent, the organ has been 
put out of sight altogether." 

Amongst the cases which more or less merit the above condemna- 
tion, may be cited those at St. Katherine's, Regent's Park (1778), 
Greenwich Hospital (1789 fine workmanship thrown away on a 
poor design), New College Chapel, Oxford (1776 a barbarous 
erection, now destroyed, with a hole through the middle of it to 
allow a " peep " at the Reynolds window) all by Green ; York 
Minster (Elliott and Hill, 1829) and Leeds Parish Church (a weird 
mass of " carvery " in the form of a shrine, without a single pipe 
showing). Many others are to be met with in smaller churches 
which are even more horrible, but it does not seem quite 
fair to put the latter into the same pillory of architectural depravity 
as the more important churches just mentioned, where the foremost 
architects of the day found congenial occupation, presumably to 
the mutual satisfaction of all concerned. 

When Gothic architecture began to be properly studied, and 
its principles mastered, a great change rapidly came about. One 
of the earliest fruits of the Revival, so far as organ-cases are con- 
cerned, is to be found at the University Church of St. Mary the 
Virgin, at Oxford. Here, in 1827, the Revivalist architect, one 
Thomas Plowman, found an interesting Father Smith case on the 
screen dividing the chancel from the nave, and set about altering 
the nave front to make it fit in with his notions of what an organ- 
case in a Gothic church should look like. Without altering the 
disposition of the pipes, but merely by the substitution of perpen- 
dicular caps, shades, tracery and panels for the old Renaissance 
work (leaving only the foliated pipe shades of two of the compart- 
ments and the cherubs that form the brackets to the three towers) , 
he completely transformed it. Though not at all happy, the result 
is much better than most of this kind and period. [73] 26 The 
chancel front, (which is really only a more or less ornamental 
back, consisting of three flat towers and two-storied intermediate 
flats, each filled with flattened wooden dummy pipes, painted a 
dull red-brown) he left, though in a somewhat mutilated condition, 
so that we are able to compare it with the " restored " case, and 
form an estimate of its original appearance. 

The Oxford Architectural Society and the Cambridge Camden 
Society, both founded about 1839, did much to foster and direct 

26 At Norwich Cathedral a Harris organ-case was similarly treated in 
1833, and again in 1899, only much less successfully ; in fact, this twice- 
tinkered case is not now worthy of its position in so splendid a building. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 41 

the new movement, and the organ-case was not overlooked. The 
two Buttons exerted no little influence, the elder one in his " Short 
Account of Organs " (for which Pugin supplied a set of five sugges- 
tive designs), and the younger in his " Church Organs," first pub- 
lished in 1866 under the title " Some Account of the Mediteval 
Organ-case still existing at Old Radnor/' and illustrated with 
etchings of existing old organs and some extremely interesting 
designs for new ones in the earlier Gothic styles. In this connection 
the most remarkable and unique design prepared by William Burges, 
for the Cathedral of Lille (but never constructed) must be noticed. 
Mr. Audsley describes it as a " Castle of Sound and Music . . . 
designed for the reception of a complete polychromatic embellish- 
ment, which, had it been carried out under Mr. Burges' careful 
supervision, would unquestionably have made the work the most 
expressive and artistic of its class ever designed." 2 7 

Amongst the earliest of the really fine Gothic cases were those 
designed by Sir Gilbert Scott for Ely (1851), St. Mary's, Nottingham 
[56] (1871), Manchester (1872), Chester (1876), and Ripon (1878), 
and Mr. R. C. Carpenter's case for Sherborne Abbey. Possibly the 
noblest of them all is that at St. Bartholomew's, Armley, which 
seems to have been erected about the year 1880, but I am unable to 
give the architect's name. Mention should be made of the cases 
at St. Barnabas, Pimlico, and St. John the Divine, Kennington 
(G. F. Bodley) ; Halifax and Croydon Parish Churches (J. O. Scott, 
1899 and 1893 respectively) ; Northington Church, Hants (T. G. 
Jackson) ; Chichester and Peterborough Cathedrals (A. G. Hill, 
1888 and 1904 respectively) ; St. Mary's, Portsea (Sir A. Blomfield) ; 
St. Alban's, Teddington (A. H. Skipworth) ; St. Martin of Tours, 
Epsom (Sir C. Nicholson) ; Chiswick Parish Church and West- 
minster Abbey (J. L. Pearson) ; Stratford-on-Avon and St. Augus- 
tine's, Pendlebury (Bodley and Garner) ; St. Paul's, Morton, near 
Gainsborough (J. T. Micklethwaite and Somers Clarke, 1893) ; St. 
John's, Stanstead Mountfitchet and Winchester College Chapel 
(W. D. Caroe, 1891 and 1911 respectively) ; the Lady Chapel of 
the new Cathedral at Liverpool (Gilbert Scott) ; also Holy Trinity, 
Rugby ; Marlborough College Chapel ; Selby Abbey ; Lichfield 
Cathedral ; Rawtenstall Parish Church ; St. Paul's, Burton-on- 
Trent ; Holy Trinity, Bracknell ; Great Bardfield ; Great Saling 
and Littlebury the three last-named quite small organs in village 
churches in Essex. Some of these are splendid : all are good. 

The revival of Gothic led to a similar revival in Renaissance, 
and the concluding section of this article will be devoted mainly 
to organ cases designed in this style, most of which were built 
during the past thirty years. 

Mr. T. G. Jackson has some exceptionally fine organ-cases to 
his credit, amongst which may be quoted those at Hampstead 

27 " The Art of Organ Building," Vol. I., p. 149. 



42 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

Parish Church (with campaniles above its tower-cornices), Hertford 
College Chapel, Oxford (a well proportioned case in light oak, 
with a campanile above its central V-tower, and angels worked 
into the carving of the pierced screens above the two compartments 
which connect this central tower with the rounded ones at either 
end), and Brasenose College Chapel, Oxford [74]. The latter, 
which was constructed in 1892, encloses quite a small two-manual 
instrument. It is placed on the screen dividing the chapel from 
the ante-chapel, to each of which it presents a differently planned 
front of gilded pipes. The east, or chapel front, has three rounded 
towers. Above the central one, which is the smallest, is seated an 
angel, playing on a viol. Two peacocks are to be seen in the pipe- 
shades of each of the three towers. The west front has two V-shaped 
towers (whose supporting brackets terminate in small heads of 
angels), and a rounded one between. Above the latter, which is 
placed at a lower level than the others, is an angel blowing a trumpet, 
and included in the carving of its pipe shade is a peacock. Four 
angels take the place of peacocks in the remaining towers of this 
front. The case is of light oak, embellished with gold, and the 
overhanging sides add to its graceful and dignified appearance. 

Finer still, however, is the same architect's case in the Shel- 
donian Theatre, in the same city, constructed in 1877 [75]. 
Beautiful alike in outline, detail, and colour, it harmonizes splendidly 
with the architecture, internal fittings, and decorative scheme of 
Wren's famous building. The treatment of the wings of large 
metal pipes at the back, and the way in which the central breast 
and its flanking towers are connected with the gallery front, are 
especially worthy of notice. The small carved wings on either side 
of the front are just what such appendages ought to be, and add 
not a little to a case of many charms a case to which I, for one, 
always turn with feelings of admiration and pleasure, and one 
which seems little short of perfection. 

Mr. A. G. Hill's grandest case is at Sydney Town Hall, New 
South Wales, 28 but a good example of a plainer and painted case, 
designed by him in the Renaissance style, is to be seen at the 
Guildhall, Cambridge [76]. The projecting tubas are a somewhat 
unnecessary feature, and there is but little in the way of ornamenta- 
tion, but there are many points about this excellently proportioned 

28 It is certainly the finest 32ft. front that ever emanated from England, 
where few of our architects seem to know how to deal with such large pipes. 
Only two such cases are even tolerably successful those at Leeds Town Hall 
and St. George's Hall, Liverpool, the others (such as those at the Albert 
Hall and Alexandra Palace) being only more or less (and generally less) 
successful attempts at grouping 32ft. pipes with little in the way of case. 
Two attempts at 32ft. fronts in churches (at Carlisle Cathedral and at Eton 
College Chapel) are miserable failures, the impression given being that of 
enormous stove-pipes whose manipulation was beyond the power of the 
architect. The effect at Eton is not greatly (if at all) improved by the 
elaborate scheme of decoration. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 43 

16ft. case, which might well serve as a model where the space 
allowed is wide in proportion to its height, and where an expensive 
case is out of the question. 

At the Queen's Hall, lyangham Place, W., there is another 
case, on similar lines, but more elaborately carved and decorated, 
designed by Mr. T. E. Knightley, the architect of the hall. It is 
painted in delicate tints and enriched with gold. 

Reading Town Hall [77] possesses a fine and imposing oak 
case, with a 16ft. speaking-front of plain metal pipes. It is so 
planned that a considerable number of the larger pipes are dis- 
played on its three sides without any of its compartments being 
broken up into stories. It was designed by Mr. Lainson. 

Clapham Parish Church (dedicated to the Holy Trinity, not to 
St. Mary, as stated in Hopkins and Rimbault) possesses at the 
present time two organs. The older one [ ], though still playable, 
has not been used since the erection of the new instrument in the 
chancel in 1909. It still occupies its original position in the west 
gallery, where it was erected by the late Mr. J. C. Bishop, in 1845. 
Many Renaissance churches this one is of the watered-down- 
Renaissance species which were either built or re-fitted in the 
first half of the last century, had the good taste to refuse the cases 
designed in the debased and nasty forms then in vogue, and so, 
here and there, we find reversions to older and better types. This 
one is an instance of a case out of its period by some seventy or 
eighty years. What little ornamentation there is is in good taste, 
and it is a pleasure to find it still retaining its west gallery position. 2 9 

At the other end of the church, in a specially constructed 
loft on the north side of the chancel is a fine new organ by Messrs. 
Hunter and Son. [78] The oak case, made by the builders, is in 
accordance with the designs of Mr. Beresford Pite. Personally, I 
do not like to see the tops of the pipes showing above the wood-work 
of the case, and I cannot say that I admire either the fret-carving 
which is so much in evidence, or the curve given to the cornices 
which connect the towers with the wings ; but these blemishes if 
blemishes they are are not sufficient to detract from the air of 
strength conveyed by what is really a fine and original case. I 
have nothing but admiration to express for the fine quality of 
workmanship both of case and instrument. 

The practice, above referred to, of leaving the tops of the 
pipes exposed above the highest part of the case-work, became 
the rule rather than the exception with organs made in England 
during the greater part of the nineteenth century. This is altogether 
contrary to the usage observed in all the finest of the older organ- 

29 Perhaps the best of all these " old-fashioned " cases is that built by 
J. Booth, in 1827, for Brunswick Chapel, L,eeds. It has seven towers and 
the usual flats in the gieat case, and a choir organ in front of the gallery. 



44 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

cases, both English and Continental. In this connection it is worth 
while recalling Wren's disgust and indignation when he found 
Father Smith's pipes protruding above the cornice of his case at 
St. Paul's, and the pains he took to conceal them by designing 
additional carving for the top of the case. I venture to say that 
even so gifted an architect as Sir Gilbert Scott was unable to produce 
a faultless case when he departed as he often did from this 
important principle of mediaeval organ-design. Fine cases can 
be, and have been made, but perfect ones never ! 

There was a certain type of case which was constructed about 
the middle of the last Century, when architects gave over copying 
old English cases and tried to evolve something new, and, to their 
minds, more in keeping with the Renaissance and Classic buildings 
which they were called upon to build or restore. This was before 
the older Continental cases had been studied, hence their achieve- 
ments in this direction, though not lacking in originality, were 
generally rather heavy in appearance. Some of them, however, 
were not without a certain air of distinction. Amongst them may 
be noted those at St. Martin-in-the-Fields (T. Allom, 1854 a 
double case) ; St. Peter's, Manchester (E. Salomons, 1856) ; 
Providence Congregational Church, Cleckheaton ; and Halifax 
Place Wesleyan Church, Nottingham. 

The above types have been succeeded by others in which the 
Renaissance forms are used with greater freedom and boldness. 
Some of these have already been described more or less briefly ; 
others are to be found at Wadham and Corpus Christi Colleges, 
Oxford ; and Radley College, near Abingdon (T. G. Jackson the 
effect of the Radley organ is somewhat marred by its carved wings, 
which are somewhat obtrusive) ; Douglas Castle, Isle of Man (H. 
Wilson, 1896 a pleasing and original composition with its pipe 
shades for the most part solid, evidently on account of the small- 
ness of the chapel) ; St. Catherine's College, Cambridge (T. Garner, 
1895 with a choir case in front) ; the Victoria Hall, Halifax 
(A. G. Hill, 1901 a case in three divisions, at the back and sides 
of the stage, connected by perforated screens), and Haileybury 
College Chapel (Reginald Blomfield, 1901 a fine, bold and original 
example). 

It is curious that the debased taste prevalent during the 
eighteenth Century should have had such different results here 
and abroad, but so it was. Here in England, after the ineffectual 
attempt at more florid forms (as exemplified in some of Renatus 
Harris's later instruments), the downward movement ended in 
flat cases meanly ornamented with poor, stiff carving. On the 
Continent (though to a lesser degree in France than in Spain, 
Germany and the Netherlands) the tendency was from the first 

so The organ, but not the case, is now at St. Bride's Church, Old Trafford, 
where it was removed on the destruction of St. Peter's Church in 1907. 



ENGLISH ORGAN-CASES 45 

towards organ-cases with wildly exaggerated excrescences at the 
sides and above, enormous carved figures and rococo ornament. 
It is, perhaps, only natural that the revulsion of feeling against 
these debased forms of art should have first set in the country 
where the worst cases were to be found namely, in England. 
In Germany, on the other hand, however much one finds to criticise 
in the matter of design, it has to be admitted that organ-cases of the 
period were frequently examples of splendid workmanship, and 
often of no little magnificence. In fact, in most of them it is only 
the ornamental detail that is at fault, the lines being good and the 
proportions excellent. As a result, we find that many quite modern 
German cases in the Renaissance style exhibit the same regrettable 
tendencies in the way of fantastic cornices and florid ornamentation 
that characterized the majority of cases constructed in the 18th 
Century. 

The revival of Gothic architecture in France, Germany and 
the Netherlands, accompanied as usual by a destruction of much 
ancient and beautiful ecclesiastical furniture, has scarcely advanced 
beyond that stage, which, in England, earned Sir John Button's 
severe condemnation. Few of the modern cases " in the Gothic 
style " to be seen in these countries are better than Blore's erections 
at Winchester and Peterborough the last named, fortunately, 
now no more. 

I do not hesitate to say that in organ-cases produced within the 
last fifty or sixty years, both Gothic and Renaissance, England 
stands unrivalled. 

In conclusion, I venture to suggest that one or two ancient 
devices, which seem to have been almost wholly neglected by 
architects of our modern organ-fronts, might be more frequently 
used with the happiest results. For instance, if, instead of trimming 
the pipes with a view to symmetry, or of covering their upper 
extremities with pipe-shades, the shades are kept clear above the 
pipes, and the latter are allowed to display the whole of their 
natural speaking lengths, a certain quaint beauty, otherwise un- 
obtainable, is achieved. 

The shades themselves can be either quite symmetrical, or the 
lowest edges can be so treated that they follow, more or less exactly, 
the rake of the pipes, hovering, so to speak, above the top of each 
individual pipe. Excellent examples of organs with pipes and pipe- 
shades so treated, are those at Barcelona Cathedral (1546), Tarragona 
Cathedral (1563) and St. Filiu, Gerona (c. 1575). At San Petronio, 
Bologna (1470), some of the shades are symmetrical, while others 
are cut so as to follow the pipe levels more exactly. I cannot recall 
any English case where this treatment is to be observed, for at 
Wey bridge both pipes and shades are symmetrical. 

Then, for church organs, especially those placed in a loft 



46 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

over the chancel aisle, or at the West end, I would advocate the 
revival of folding-doors or shutters. Such an organ as that at St. 
Michael and All Angels, Croydon [60], would gain much by such 
appendages, especially if enriched with appropriate paintings, while 
the shutters would be of no little utility at church cleaning times. 
In addition to those at Theddingworth [48] and Jesus College, 
Cambridge [52 and 53], already described, two other organ-cases 
which are so provided deserve a word of praise, one at St. Andrew 
the Less, Barnwell, Cambridge, and the other at St. Hugh's Chapel, 
Bishop's Hostel, Lincoln. The first of these seems to have been 
designed by Sir John Sutton. The other is a very beautiful example 
by Mr. Temple Moore, than whom no one seems happier or more 
successful in the treatment of Gothic organ-cases, judging from 
his designs for the organ-fronts at All Saints', Tooting Graveney, 
and at Skirbeck Church, near Boston. 

The separate choir- organ case seems also to have gone out of 
fashion of late years, though a few organs recently built have 
part of their cases advanced somewhat after the manner of a choir- 
case one instance being that at Clapham Parish Church. [78]. 
Yet a hanging choir-organ case can be made one of the most charming 
features in a design, and many organ fronts would be greatly 
improved by such an addition. 

I am quite sure that our architects would have something 
fresh and beautiful to show us if they included these special features 
just named amongst the other forms and devices which we now 
know they can use with such skill and originality.

THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND 
CLERGY. 

A Commentary on the Model Agreement for 

the Clergy and Organists of the 

Church of England. 

As prepared by 
Herbert Westerly, Mus. Bac. Lond., F.R.C.O., LMus.T.C.L. 



THE position of Organist and Choirmaster in connection with the 
Parish Churches of England and Wales as it exists to-day in 
the eyes of the Law is one of distinct peculiarity ; as one 
that is unrecognized in Ecclesiastical Law, and yet that is in the 
present universality of highly ornate musical services, responsible 
for a considerable and highly important portion of these services, 
it is exceedingly necessary that the conditions governing the 
successful maintenance of such a delicately balanced situation 
should be stated in full detail. 

The peculiarity of the position lies in the fact that it is not 
so much in what is made legally binding on both Church Authorities 
and Organist (though that necessarily has its place), but in the 
knowledge of, on both sides, the various customs and usages which 
obtain with regard, to the same. These latter, along with various 
suggestions towards realizing that perfect harmony and co-operation 
which should exist between the Clergy and the profession are stated 
in detail in the following Disquisition. 

It will be seen, therefore, that this " Commentary " is really 
of more importance than the Agreement itself.* It is hoped that 
the following Commentary will be found to anticipate, as far as 
possible, any sources of misunderstanding appertaining to the 
relationship of Incumbent with Organist and Choirmaster : 

" Successful co-operation can only come from mutual 
confidence and loyalty in promoting the same aims. At 
the same time, it is quite right that there should be a clear 
agreement as to the time and services for which the Organist 
is to be responsible." 

REV. T. B. I/INDSAY, 

Rural Dean of Scarborough 
(now Archdeacon). 

* It is suggested that the Agreement should be (1) used only as a guide 
to find out what may be expected ; (2) to be produced when an agreement 
form is necessary. 



80 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

" Nearl^ all the misunderstandings between Parson 
and Organist are owing to want of definiteness as to what 
is and what is not expected of the Organist." 

REV. T. P. BROCKI,EHURST, 

Formerly Vicar of Brocklehurst. 
To the Organist. 

(1). The position of Organist and Choirmaster in the Parish 
Churches of England is not known to Ecclesiastical Law, and there- 
fore the professional Organist, in common with other professional 
classes who give their services in part only to various persons or 
institutions, is subject to, and governed by, the ordinary laws of 
the realm, i.e., the Common Law. Briefly put, it follows that 
whatever is agreed upon between the contracting parties should 
be put into the usual form of a Contract, and duly signed and 
witnessed, if possible, under the supervision of the legal agents of 
both parties. 

(2). The specification of duties in such Contract should be 
precise and clear in every detail, and, as a matter of business, 
avoiding generalities of any kind which would place the office- 
holder in a similar position to one who gives up his whole time 
to the Church. The list of services, choral and non-choral, ordinary 
and special, therefore, at which the Organist or his deputy is ex- 
pected to be present, and the duties he is supposed 1 to undertake 
in connection with the Choir, should be fully and completely 
detailed. To this end such clauses should be deleted or added 
as is thought necessary to govern the circumstances of the case, 
and the form of Agreement as amended should be submitted to 
the legal agents of both parties for their approval. Care should 
be taken that all that is verbally agreed upon should be added to 
the Contract, as " it is a well-known rule of Common Law that 
oral evidence shall not be given to add to, subtract from, or alter 
or vary the terms of a written Agreement." z A very simple form 
of Contract consists of a written List of Duties, Privileges and 
Liabilities signed by both parties. This form may suffice in many 
cases. 2 

(3). As the time given by the Professional Parish Organist 
and Choirmaster to his duties as such (as contrasted with the 
Cathedral Organist) is but small in comparison with that given 
to his ordinary professional avocations, it is only right and a 
matter of business that he should be protected from " undue 
demands on his time." 3 And as the remuneration usually bestowed 
in his case does not follow on the higher scale, it is advisable that 
he should be allowed Deputies (duly approved) " for the com- 
paratively unimportant portions of his duty." 3

Temple, Esq., Barrister-at-Law.

of the R.C.O. 



THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND CLERGY 81 

(4). An Organist " cannot be compelled to perform any duties 
foreign to " (a) such as are duly specified in the Contract. If the 
necessity arises for new or additional work or assistance in the 
musical services of the Church (such as additional daily or evening 
services), or preparation for the same, the new demands on his 
professional labour and time should, as a matter of business, be 
made the subject of an amicable business arrangement. 

(5). An Incumbent cannot rightly and legally interfere with 
an Organist's obtaining or performing other professional duties in 
whatsoever sphere (church or secular) so long as these duties do 
not interfere with the particular Contract spoken of, nor are 
derogatory in any way to the nature of the same. 

(6). The Churchwardens or members of the Vestry who are 
primarily responsible, are usually associated with the Incumbent 
in the written guarantee of payment of the stipend accruing to the 
office of Organist and Choirmaster. 

" Like many other old churches, my church is governed 
by the Vestry, and the Clergy have no control over the 
musical engagements." 

(The late) DR. K. H. TURPIN, 
Hon. Sec., Royal College of Organists. 

The Incumbent is not responsible for the Organist's stipend 
unless he sign an agreement to that effect, either by himself or 
in conjunction with the Churchwardens, or unless he has given 
a written guarantee " to some third party that he would pay the 
stipend if the amount could not be collected in any other way. "(b) 

" The Churchwardens, who are the purse-bearers of 
the congregation, should have a voice in the appointment." 

REV. T. P. BROCKI/EHURST. 

(7). The Incumbent can elect an Organist, but " cannot com- 
pel the Parish to pay his appointee. "(c) 

The Churchwardens (members of " Vestry " or of " Select 
Vestry ") can elect an Organist " if authorized by the Parish and 
allowed by the Incumbent, "(d) Their choice, however, should be 
duly approved by the Incumbent as the person legally responsible 
for the whole of the services of the Church. 

The Churchwardens " if authorized by the Parish " may under- 
take to pay the Organist's stipend, (e) 

11 If the Parish find the Organist's stipend and are allowed to 
elect him, it is doubtful whether the minister can dismiss him."(/) 

The Incumbent may, subject to the terms of the express or 
implied Contract, " dispense with the services of the duly appointed 
Organist," but if " appointed and paid by some third party he 
may not have the power " to deprive him of his stipend, (g) 

a (Blew.) 

b (Blew). All References a to 1. 



82 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

(7a). The arrangement made with the Churchwardens binds 
them only for the year of their office. 

" If the Churchwardens make an arrangement with an Organist 
for a period exceeding the duration of their office, they may render 
themselves personally liable on the Contract. "(h) 

" I have always claimed and used the power, as 
Incumbent, of appointing and dismissing an Organist, 
but have, as a matter of courtesy, acted with the know- 
ledge and consent of the Wardens. These are a ' Corpora- 
tion ' with charge of the offertories, and are morally if not 
legally bound to continue the engagement of their prede- 
cessors, should any change in their number occur." 

THE VEN. ARCHDEACON LINDSAY. 

Whatever arrangement is come to it should be clearly stated 
in the agreement who is responsible for the payment of the stipend 
attached to the office in question. It is also advisable when the 
Churchwardens, members of the Vestry, or third parties assume 
responsibility for the stipend, that such responsibility is transferred 
on their resignation to their successors, space being left for the 
purpose in the Agreement, the alterations to be initialled by both 
parties. The form of Contract should be signed by both parties 
and duly witnessed, preferably through the legal agents of both, 
and a copy provided for the Incumbent and the Organist. 

(8). The length of notice required for termination of the 
Contract should be duly stated.* 

(8a). Termination on the part of the INCUMBENT without 
notice is possible on the ground of wilful breach of the terms, 
unlawful absence from or neglect of duties, moral, pecuniary, or 
other misconduct reflecting on or derogatory to the nature of his 
office. The accused can, however, always enter a petition- at-law 
for damages for wrongful dismissal or for any action calculated 
to injure him in his profession. 



On the other hand, termination on the part of the 
ORGANIST without notice is possible on the ground of wilful 
breach of the terms of the Contract, such as failure to pay stipend 
when due on the part of those responsible, any attempt, without 
due notice, to relieve him of any portion of the responsibilities 
delegated to him by the Contract, etc.f 

(9). An Organist is entitled to a true and correct appreciation 
of the professional duties performed by him in connection with 
any church. 

* On the determination of the agreement the Organist will " deliver up 
to the Vicar and Churchwardens all books and music and other documents, 
instruments, things or property belonging to the Vicar and Churchwardens 
then in his custody or power." (From an agreement.) 

f A Parish Organist's stipend is due at the close of the Sunday Service. 



THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND CLERGY 83 

(10). An organ legally* placed in a parish church becomes, 
in" the absence of a proviso to the contrary, 3 the property of the 
parish. As the property of the parish, the organ comes under the 
care of the Churchwardens except during the time of divine service 
when it comes under the legal control of .jthe Incumbent. 

" The Churchwardens' care of, and the Minister's control over, 
the organ, when there is no service in the church, may very briefly 
be described as negative. Neither of the parties can authorize its 
use, yet neither can nullify the sanction of the other." 

(lOa). It will be necessary, therefore, that for the usual 
privilege of the Organist's own practice, for lessons to pupils, and 
pupils' practice, the written consent of both Churchwardens and 
Incumbent be obtained. Any limitation, also, of practice restric- 
tion as to hours, as well as the provision of the means for practice, 
should be duly stated in the Agreement. 

(lOb). It is customary and reasonable to leave the sole charge 
of so complex an instrument as the organ entirely in the Organist's 
hands, making him responsible for its safe keeping, and as the 
only means of attaining its efficient control, allowing him oppor- 
tunities for daily practice. 

(lOc). As a matter of courtesy, the Incumbent and Church- 
wardens will respect this charge by not giving access to the organ 
to others, and the Organist will observe similar restrictions (pupils 
and deputies always excepted) where due permission for the same 
has not already been obtained.* 

(lOd). The Organist is not responsible in any way for the 
upkeep, repair, or tuning of the organ this falling to the Builders 
or Tuners, according to the usual Contract ; and though he may 
volunteer to put any minor disorder right that may make no 
particular demand on his professional time, it is no part of his 
duties, and he cannot be compelled to execute the same. Never- 
theless, it would be his duty to notify the Incumbent of any failing 
in the instrument. 

(11). As Choirmaster the Organist is not only responsible for 
the training of the voices, but is at least responsible for order or 
the discipline of the choir generally at practices. 

A ' No organ can be legally set up in, or removed from, a consecrated 
church without a faculty from the Ordinary " (" the Bishop of the Diocese 
and his Chancellor "). (Blew.} 

B ' In which case the property in the organ may remain in, or revert to, 
the person placing it in the church." (Blew.} 

* " I quite endorse what you say in reference to repairs and use of organ." 
(Rev. T. E. Lindsay}. 



84 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

"It is infra dig on the part of the choirmaster to 
expect the clergy to keep order at the practices the 
clergy destroy the morale of the choir if they interfere 
with discipline." 

REV. E. P. BROCKI^EHURST.f 

(1 la) . Mention might be made of the conditions regarding the 
Choirmaster's power to elect or dispense with members of the Choir, 
together with any assistance in the organization of the Choir that 
he may look for from the Incumbent or his deputies : 

" As in the choice of an Organist, so in that of Choris- 
ters, the ultimate object is not music but worship ; there- 
fore the incumbent must, if he be true to his responsibilities, 
choose men of good life and character, and dispense with 
them if they fail to justify their position in the church. 
Their fitness as musicians would, of course, be decided by 
the Organist and Choirmaster." 

REV. T. B. LINDSAY, 

Rural Dean of Scarborough. 

Before proposed members are admitted to any form of choir 
work it is advisable that the name should be submitted to the 
clergy for enquiry. 

With regard to the dismissal of choir members : 

" The Incumbent ought to get rid of them on the 
representation of the Organist." 

SIR FREDERICK -BRIDGE, 

(Westminster Abbey). 

" As the Choristers are formally admitted to office by 
the Incumbent, so their dismissal should come from him, 
even though it be the act of the Organist." 

REV. T. E. LINDSAY, 

Rural Dean of Scarborough. 

The difficulty of Dual Control (moral and musical) of the 
Choir is simplified if the Vicar and Organist observe their respective 
practical spheres of interest. And, as the position of Choir Members 
is primarily a musical one, it follows that in the : 

1. Admission of Choristers. Ascertainment of musical 
fitness by the Organist should come first. 

2a. Dismission. Moral grounds on the part of the Vicar, 
or 

2b. Musical or disciplinary reasons on the part of the 
Organist should suffice. 

In 1 permission is necessary, in 2b confirmation on the part of 
the Vicar 

(12). Details as to the fixing or alteration of choir-practice 
night should be arranged with the Incumbent. 

(12a). Mention might be made of the facilities room and 
instrument usually provided for choir practice. 

f An Organist may amicably consent to occasionally help the Incumbent, 
his deputy, the curate or choir chaplain, to a more correct and artistic ren- 
dering of his part (usually arranged as a matter for private tuition) . 



THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND CLERGY 85 

(13). The medium and responsibility for payment of the choir 
members and choristers should be fixed. 

(13a). The Organist should also consult with the Vicar and 
Churchwardens before incurring any outlay, such as for new music 
on behalf of the Choir.* 

(14). It is necessary that the Organist should appoint his own 
minor officials (secretary and others) to fulfil minor duties in con- 
nection with the Choir for which he may be responsible notifica- 
tion of choir practices and of absentees, provision of choir lists, 
lists of services, occasional MS. copies of music (secretary), super- 
vision and care of music (librarians), cassocks, surplices, etc 
(monitors) . 

(15). Particulars as to recitals, occasional musical festival or 
oratorio performances, with the portion to be received from the 
offertories of same, etc. 

(15a). Fees at Weddings, Funerals, and Baptisms, etc., should 
be mentioned likewise. With regard to fees for Weddings, the 
procedure obtains in some places of referring such applications to 
the Clerk to the Vestry. In such case there is generally " an 
inclusive fee, covering the use of the organ, the blowing, the ser- 
vices of the Organist, and, for a further fee, the attendance of the 
Choir boys," such fee being paid to the Clerk. 

(15b). Provision should also be made for the offerings on 
Organist's Sunday where the custom obtains. 

(16). The provision of Deputies for holidays, absence or illness 
should also be made and responsibility of payment of same should 
be stated. 

(17). It is desirable that the Choirmaster and Organist should 
as far as possible have the choice of the music " A most important 
question to the highly-trained and capable organist " (Pearce). 
The latter would, of course, bear in mind the character of the 
services agreed upon, its suitability to the occasion or for the 
particular season of the Church's year. The clergyman frequently 
reserves the choice of the hymns, and sometimes suggests some 
particular anthem. Much, however, depends on the Choir Practice, 
the attendance at the Services, the " form " in which the Choir- 
master finds his Choristers (especially with a Voluntary Choir), 
that it is advisable to give him as free a hand as possible. General 
conditions can be best arranged as in 18 (Sir Frederick Bridge). 

* When the Organist's privilege of discount rates is borrowed it is only 
businesslike that he should be promptly reimbursed for the amount, plus 
inclusive postages. 



86 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

By THE BISHOP OF RICHMOND 

" With the Organist and Choir- trainer rests the choice 
of music. If the composer gives his best the Organist 
must choose the best. The Organist's first duty is to 
separate the wheat from the chaff, to discern the true 
ring of spiritual worship in anthem, service, chant, and 
hymn tune. 

" He should consider ' how much shall be sung,' and 
' the voices at his disposal.' " 

(18). The Organist will find it useful to have an occasional 
conference with the Incumbent in order to talk over arrange- 
ments for the musical services and " on any matter affecting the 
general welfare of the choir." 

Legally speaking, the Incumbent has entire control over, and 
is responsible for, the services of the church in every detail, 
whether musical or otherwise. 

" The choice of music to be sung belongs to the Vicar 
as much as the prayers and the sermon. He may delegate 
it to his Organist, but has no right to make an Agreement 
to tie his hands from discharging his duty." 

RBv. T. B. LINDSAY. 

It is, perhaps, an anomaly that one who is neither a professional 
nor an expert in the realm of music " should have the power to 
control and nullify the judgment and experience of one " who is 
both. The " result is to be attributed to modern requirements 
rather than to a defect in the law," " the organist has his moral 
right, and the principle upon which incumbent and organist must 
proceed must be essentially one of co-operation.^ In their relations 
with each other, incumbent and organist should carefully discrimin- 
ate between suggestions on the one hand, and commands or inter- 
ference on the other." k " The additional importance now claimed, 
and rightly so, for the office of organist and the technical knowledge 
and skill an average organist now possesses " should " make an 
incumbent cautious how he interferes with him." 1 

Sir Hubert Parry (the then President of the Royal College of 
Organists) in a public address has said in effect, that having ap- 
pointed the best man possible (under the circumstances) the in- 
cumbent should give him a free hand ; or, in the words of a model 
agreement drawn up by a Yorkshire clergyman, B " the organist 
and choirmaster should have a free hand within the reasonable 
limits mentioned in this (agreement), so that he may feel every 
interest in increasing and developing the musical character of the 
services." This being so, the following quotation seems also 
reasonable : 

(19). "The Organist and Director of the Choir will regard 

A " Blew " (Barrister-at-Law), 1878. 
B Rev. T. P. Brocklehurst. 



THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND CLERGY 87 

himself as being one of the ministers of the church, and will be 
so regarded by his colleagues, the Vicar and other ministers of the 
church." 

Etiquette, therefore, on the part of the Clergyman, would 
forbid (after the general style of the musical service has been 
decided upon) interference as to his colleague's accompaniments 
to the service or as to the pieces played on the organ (except a 
request be preferred for certain music on special occasions) or in 
the detailed choice of music made by the Choirmaster, who natur- 
ally is the best judge of what is musically appropriate and what is 
suited to the capabilities of his choir. 

(19a). What has been said already as to the impolicy, not to 
speak of etiquette, of interference on the part of the incumbent 
naturally applies more strongly to the same on the part of his 
deputies, the curate, choir chaplain, or precentor.* 

(19b). " It is no part of the Churchwardens' duty to interfere 
with the way the service is performed they cannot order the 
Organist to play, nor can they forbid him to do so." The office 
of Churchwarden is one of " observation and complaint, but not 
control with regard to divine worship" (Lord Stowell). Such 
" complaint " would be referred to the Ordinary (" The Bishop of 
the Diocese and his Chancellor "). 

In the further interests of friendly co-operation of both in- 
cumbent and organist it will be seen that the following warning 
uttered by Dr. Pearce, of the Council of the Royal College of 
Organists, should be mutual, applying equally to both parties. 
" The wise organist will suffer no man, nor woman, to occupy an 
intermediate and interfering position between himself and his 
clergyman or minister." 

To further emphasize the need of co-operation we quote from 
an address given by Dr. Madely Richardson at the annual conference 
of the Incorporated Society of Professional Musicians held in 
Dublin in January, 1903. 

The Clergy and Organist and Choirmaster " should act side by 
side, shoulder to shoulder, representing respectively the theological 
and musical side of Church life." 

" The musical welfare of the Choir should be very near the 
heart of the clergy, but the initiative in matters concerning it 
should come from the Organist." 

(20). FINALLY, to quote again from the Agreement men- 
tioned in Article 18, " the incumbent and churchwardens should 

* The Precentor is " unknown to ecclesiastical law," and neither choir, 
Chaplain, Precentor, Curate, or other presiding cleric can, " unless requested 
~by the Vicar, have the right to say anything about the service." (Blew.) ^ 



88 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

(in consideration that the time an Organist and Choirmaster gives 
to the Church is not remunerated at the usual rate of professional 
work) in every legitimate way do their best to further the pro- 
fessional welfare of the organist and choirmaster " (Brocklehurst), 
on the ground that he " makes it a point of honour to do his utmost 
for the church with that limited portion of time which he has at 
his disposal " (Pearce). 

"It is the bounden duty of the Vicar to help his 
Organist to get teaching, and thus supplement the paltry 
stipend which he probably receives." 

REV. H. T. SPINNEY. 

If the Organist consents, in addition, to occasionally assist 
the choir when they offer (by means of concerts, etc.) to relieve 
the Churchwardens of a portion of their financial responsibility in 
the provision of new music, etc., he will have a further claim on 
tbeir gratitude. 



ADDENDUM. 



(21). "A great deal can be said in favour of a better secured 
fixity of tenure for the members of our profession." (Z)r. Pearce). 
" What is more desirable is that the organist should become a 
recognized church officer, holding his position on conditions similar 
to those of a curate, with, perhaps, reference to the Bishop in 
cases of real hardship." (Musical News). A Bishop's license has 
been frequently advocated as a remedy for the state of affairs, 
but as the relationship of organist and choirmaster in parish 
churches is purely a business one, it is perhaps best for him on 
the whole to remain entirely free of ecclesiastical law. Moreover, 
it is understood that Bishops and Convocation have no legal power 
in the matter. Nevertheless, it is hoped that a petition to Convo- 
cation may result in a moral recommendation : * 

(1). That the Incumbent, when making a change of parish 
or receiving a new appointment, would earnestly consider the 
advisability of continuing the existing agreement with the organist 
and choirmaster of the new church ; 

(2). That consideration be given to the advisability of recog- 
nizing, in common with decayed clergy, the moral claim of organists 
who have grown old in the service of the church to pecuniary 
assistance in their old age. 

* "A memorial to Convocation would, of course, point out that an Organist 
is utterly unprotected in Church I,aw. Under the Canons of the Scottish 
Episcopal Church an appeal to the Bishop is allowed in the case of a dispute 
as to the use of the organ at services, practices, ' or other times.' " (Clement 
A. Harris.}

N.B. Special care should be taken in the case of appointments 
in the Colonies, or United States, enquiries being directed to the 
London offices of the Agents-General for the respective Colonies, 
or to the United States, for information as to the validity of docu- 
ments signed in this country, and other matters concerning the 
appointment. 

CLERGYMEN also are warned against the policy of negotiat- 
ing with holders of American degrees, or of bogus diplomas issued 
in this country. 

ENQUIRIES may be directed to the Secretary of the Union 
of the University Graduates in Music (University of London, South 
Kensington), or to the Secretary of the Royal College of Organists,

NOTES OF INTEREST FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. 



The Organist in Relation to CONGREGATION, CHOIR, and CLERGY. 

" The Organist also needs to be a tactful individual ; he has 
to please congregation, choir, and clergy. From the purely musical 
point of view each of them may make demands which grate upon 
the feelings of the trained musician, but the latter is by no means 
free to indulge his own tastes without restriction. To him, congre- 
gational singing may be an abomination, yet it is his duty to 
encourage it, because his work involves higher considerations than 
mere musical perfection. 

" So also with his choir. Careful on the one hand to preserve 
the rights of the people he will also be zealous in the championship 
of his singers. With a voluntary choir he will not be rash enough 
to expect the finished renderings possible to professional singers ; 
he will, with certain reservations, consult their tastes and desires, 
recognizing that his forces, if not paid in money, may not un- 
reasonably look for the recompense of their services in music and 
in the enhancement of the reputation of the choir for character 
and performance. 

" His relations with the clergy also depend for their amicable- 
ness upon this invaluable quality of tact, which, it may be said, 
should be thoroughly mutual. Here again it is satisfactory to note 
a growing improvement. The clergy as a rule are not and cannot 
be as technically conversant with music as organists, but by virtue 
of their position they govern the situation, and it is fatuous to 



90 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

ignore this cardinal fact. An organist who desires to occupy a 
post in peace and quietness, and at the same time to preserve his 
ideals of church music, must be prepared to give and take, and to 
regard his parson as a superior colleague in church work/' Musical 
News, June 16th, 1906. 

" Very often the clergyman overlooks the fact that in his 
organist he has a special officer, whose department of work is 
special in character, demanding many of the same qualities of tact 
and patience that are necessary in his own incumbency, besides 
particular acquirements which, like preparation for the clerical 
calling, have involved much study and expense." Deader, Musical 
News, March 31st, 1906. 

" Some remarks made recently by an Anglican minister in 
acknowledging the great and often unrecognized services which are 
rendered to the church by its organists, now a very large body 
of men and women : 

" ' The organist needs all the help that we can give him. 
Remember that, of the income that he must make to live in decent 
comfort (especially if he is a family man), his stipend as organist 
forms only a very small part. We expect a good deal from him, 
and we do not as a rule (in fact, we cannot) pay him on a scale 
which errs on the side of undue liberality. He has many difficulties 
and many critics. Much of his best work is done quietly and 
unostentatiously, and is not noticed. His mistakes are spotted 
at once, and are criticised with a keenness which is not inspired 
by good nature or by musical knowledge. A congregation wakes 
up to the fact that the church choir has improved enormously 
during the last two or three years. It does not strike them that 
the improvement is due mainly to the patient, unwearying grind 
and practice, week by week and month by month, of the organist 
with his choir.' " Musical Opinion. 



From the Report of the Committee appointed in October, 
1903, by the Worcester Diocesan Conference " to investigate the 
principles which should govern the use of music in churches." 

" That systematic facilities for leave of absence (apart from 
usual vacations) from work on Sundays at least once in every 
three months should be afforded to all organists and choirmasters 
with a view of 

Providing them with regular relief from very arduous duties. 

Enabling them to worship at times amongst the people. 

Enabling them to hear other services than their own. 

Preventing them from getting into a groove in their organ 
playing and methods generally." 



THE RELATION OF ORGANIST AND CLERGY 91 

ORGANISTS AND CLERGY. 

From a Paper read at the I.S.M., May llth, 1901, by Percy 
Ramsey : 

" III. In the third place, we want to cultivate more those 
two important qualifications of a successful organist and choir- 
master, sympathy and tact. One great cause of unpleasantness 
with the clergy can be traced directly to the want of sympathy on 
an organist's part with his vicar's religious opinions. An organist 
of pronounced Protestant or Low Church views is bound to feel 
out of place at a church where there is a high mass or missa cantata 
every Sunday. Similarly, a Catholic or High Church organist 
would scarcely feel at home appointed to a church where a preacher 
in a black gown continually insisted on his eternal damnation. 
And I think an organist of ' no church ' views has scarcely a right 
to be a church organist at all. We ought to consider more, when 
we apply for a post, whether we should be really happy on our 
appointment to that post. 

" Lastly, and this is by no means the least important point, 
have a definite agreement in black and white, signed by your vicar 
and yourself, so that you may know how far you are responsible 
for the behaviour of the choir boys in church, what holidays you 
may rightly claim, at what services besides the usual Sunday 
services your attendance is required, and how much of your work 
may be occasionally performed by deputy. Above all, accept no 
dual responsibility. No choir can serve two masters. Personally, 
I think it highly desirable that the vicar or one of his curates 
should be placed in charge of the spiritual and social welfare of 
the choir, preparing the boys for confirmation, explaining to them 
all acts of reverence, etc., also arranging excursions for them in 
the summer and entertainments or suppers in the winter ; but 
in such a case there must be a distinct understanding with the 
choirmaster so that there can be no interference with his legitimate 
duties."

100 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

Advice to Young Choirmasters. 

By Herbert Westerby, Mus. Bac., F.R.C.O. 

(Quoted from " Musical News," December 28th, 1907, with 
additions by H. W.) 

" r T"*HE primary necessity for a young choirmaster is to be able 
to impress his vicar and his choir with his musical ability, 
* with his modesty of demeanour, and with his high sense of 
the duties of his position." " With regard to BOYS, a good many 
young choirmasters, with excellent intentions, make a great mistake 
in being too familiar with them." " Under favourable circumstances 
a good deal may be done to make their position as church servants 
a desirable one " " but the choirmaster must never let them 
forget that he is their master." Where there are I^ADIES in the 
choir and " with MEN who give their services voluntarily, it is 
necessary to pursue a course of conciliation," tempered, of course, 
with firmness. " Grown men will not submit to open correction, 
as if they were boys, and if the choirmaster desires to retain their 
goodwill, he will not single out individuals, whatever their mis- 
takes." Separate part practice, or as a last resort, " a gentle hint 
in private " that the weak member " should look at his part at 
home," will probably suffice. Impress the choirmen " with your 
sincerity and singleness of purpose," give them " some music which 
will interest them without being beyond their capability " and 
" let them feel that you and they are fellow labourers in a high 
and holy calling," and you " will have little or no trouble with 
choir- men." This will naturally apply also to the whole of the choir. 

As to relations with the CLERGY, it should be recognised that 
in the Church of Kngland final authority rests with the vicar, and 
the wise man will consult his wishes " as to what degree the service 
is to be a musical one." 

In Nonconformist and other churches, the circumstances are 
not the same, the " vestry," " session " or " deacons' court " 
having some say in the matter ; but, if the Organist and Clergy are 
united in purpose, the former can count on things going smoothly. 
The young Organist and Choirmaster should also " make friends 
of the members of the congregation as far as he can," " that 
through their personal esteem they may come to hold his office in 
higher regard " and lead them " to a better appreciation of the 
music of the church." He will be wise also to " display interest," 
" in the undertakings of the church " and thereby " earn the affec- 
tion of his fellow- workers." He will also " be cautious and slow 
in his innovations at any time, and particularly so while he is new 
to his choir." He will thus tactfully introduce " his own method " 
by degrees, and remember that everything comes " to him who 
knows how to wait," 



POSITION AND PROSPECTS OF THE ORGANIST IN 101 

SCOTLAND 



Position and Prospects of the Organist 
in Scotland. 

By Mr. Herbert Westerby, Mus. Bac. London, F.R.C.O., &c. 



PUT briefly, these are, on the whole, certainly more favourable 
than in England. The Church of Scotland is more popular 
in its constitution than the Church of England, and the 
position of the organist, so long as he is competent and does his 
duty, is more secure, since in case of disagreement with the Kirk 
Session, he can always appeal to the Presbytery. His Choir work 
is lighter, since he has the invaluable foundation of women's 
voices, and he can get more artistic and expressive results with 
half the work necessitated by the training of young boys. 

There is a keener demand for musical (and general) education 
in Scotland, and the " bogus " musical examining institutions 
which run riot without legal " let or hindrance " in the working- 
class towns of England can scarcely find a footing in Scotland. The 
properly qualified teacher's position, therefore, is more secure and 
he is more " looked up to." 

At my request the Rev. Dr. George Bell, and the Rev. John 
M. Hunter have very kindly contributed the following valuable 
papers on the position of the organist in the Church of Scotland. 



(Contribution by the Rev. George Bell, M.A., Mus. D., Minister 
of St. Kenneth's, Holmfauldhead, Govan (Glasgow), Member of the 
Psalmody and Hymns Committee of the General Assembly of the 
Church of Scotland, and Hon. President of the Glasgow Society^pf 
Organists.) .... 



I. As regards the Clergy. (1) The appointment and dismissal 
are somewhat differently regulated from what exists in England, 
i.e., these are not exclusively vested in the incumbent of the parish, 
but in its Kirk Session. This is the lowest ecclesiastical court in 
Scotland, and consists of the minister as Moderator, with his elders, 
sitting as assessors. The latter correspond in function to 
churchwardens in England, and they vary in number according to 
the size and circumstances of the parish. In a very small rural 1 



102 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

charge there may only be two elders, while in a large urban one 
as 5 many as forty-five are to be found : the average number, 
however, is from six to eight. (2) A well-educated and competent 
organist in the Church of Scotland occupies a social position which 
is in no respect inferior, but, if anything, superior, to that of his 
brother organist in the South. The remuneration of the organist 
in Scotland is higher, on the whole, than in the average parish 
in England. (3) The ordering of the services rests entirely with 
the minister of the parish, who is answerable, not to the Kirk 
Session, but to its superior judicatory, the Presbytery. While the 
selection of psalms and hymns is retained in the hands of the 
parish minister, the choice of tunes, chants, anthems, etc., is 
assigned, by practically universal custom, to the Organist. No 
objection is raised by the Kirk Session to his giving lessons in 
organ playing, or to the practising of his pupils on the instrument. 

II. As regards the Congregation. This is scarcely a question 
of much practical importance, but it may be said that if the organist 
employs a generous allowance of familiar tunes, preferably for the 
old Scottish Psalms, in which the people can readily join, he may 
depend on having the happiest relations with all concerned. 

III. As regards the Choir. The organist sometimes acts as 
choirmaster ; where singers receive remuneration, their appoint- 
ment and dismissal are generally made either directly by himself 
or by the Kirk Session at his recommendation. Choir practices 
are mostly held once a week. 

IV. The Services of the Church of Scotland differ from those 
of the sister Establishment in England in two marked ways 
(1) by the use of a traditional form of service with unprescribed 
prayers and many formulae of considerable antiquity, and (2) by 
the employment of a much greater proportion, during the service, 
of metrical psalms and hymns over what is to be found in an English 
parish. In some places, however, responses are coming into use. 
A series of excellent volumes, drawn up by and published with the 
authority of the Church, affords ample material for a church service 
of much musical interest. These include the Scottish Hymnal, the 
Church Hymnary, the Scottish Mission Hymnal, the Scottish Metrical 
Psalter, with Tunes, the Scottish Prose Psalter, pointed for chanting, 
and the Scottish Anthem Book. There is, indeed, little to be desired 
in the musical rendering of Divine service in places like the ancient 
Cathedrals of St. Mungo, at Glasgow, and St. Giles, at Edinburgh, 
to mention but two out of many instances which might be given of 
highly efficient choirs. During the last half-century an organ has 
been erected in nearly every important parish chureh, abbey, or 
cathedral in Scotland ; and throughout the land many notable 
examples are to be found of the most modern achievements in 
organ-building. 



THE ORGANIST IN SCOTLAND 103 

Contribution by the Rev. John M. Hunter, B.D., 
Minister of Abbotshall Parish Church, Kirkcaldy. 

It seems quite unnecessary for me to add anything to the 
admirable and succinct article contributed by Dr. Bell, unless it 
be in regard to the courts of the Church to which appeals, in cases 
of dispute, may be made ; for it is really wonderful how ignorant 
the average English Churchman is of our position and Church 
government in Scotland. Presbyterians, moreover, are not even 
supposed to have any order of service, but sing, pray, and preach 
as the spirit may move them ! 

The governing ecclesiastical body of each parish is the Kirk 
Session (Kirk is Scots for Church), and we owe it to John Knox 
that the powers similar to those of the Anglican vicar are vested 
with the Kirk Session. This body is composed of the Moderator 
(or chairman), who is the minister of the parish, and certain com- 
municants who are called elders or presbyters. From this fact our 
church is Presbyterian in its government. (The word Presbyterian 
is wrongly used when it refers to certain forms of worship.) These 
elders must be parishioners or townsmen, of age and of proved 
religious bearing. They are elected by the Session, although in 
practice the 'congregation is sometimes asked to nominate suitable 
persons. 

This body is the lowest judicatory in the Church, and its 
meetings are frequent. The court above it is the Presbytery, which 
meets about six times yearly. To it every parish sends its minister 
and an elder. If there be a University in the Presbyterial district 
it is entitled to send its Professor of Divinity if also a minister. 
About twelve parishes form a Presbytery. Glasgow, however, has 
about one hundred. The shifting of the population, of course, 
accounts for the variation in the numbers constituting the various 
Presbyteries. 

The next court is the Synod, the membership of which is 
exactly the same as the Presbytery. This court meets twice in 
the year. Three or more Presbyteries compose a Synod. 

The highest court is the General Assembly, which meets once 
a year and sits for ten lawful days. Bach Presbytery sends one 
minister for every four ministers and one elder for every six. The 
Royal Burghs are entitled to send an elder. Edinburgh has the 
privilege of sending two, while the Universities may each send 
either an elder or a minister, as also the Church in India. The 
King is represented at this court in the person of the Lord High 
Commissioner. 

So far as I can discover, the position of an organist in Scottish 
Ecclesiastical Law is undefined, which is, of course, a matter for 
congratulation. The law is for the unlawful ! When the law was 



104 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

in the process of being made, there were no such beings as organists 
dreamt of. Of course there was the precentor or Master of Song, 
and I presume that our modern organists are legally entitled to 
whatever legal position these precentors occupied. I only know 
of one organist who calls himself the Master of Song Mr. Whalley, 
late of Peebles Parish Church, and now of St. George's, Edinburgh. 
It seems to be the legal title. 

Now the Kirk Session has full power over the precentor, as 
to his appointment and dismissal, and naturally they have similar 
powers over the organist. It may cheer some organists who are 
superstitiously inclined, that although the Session may appoint an 
organist, they may not appoint a doorkeeper nor a gravedigger 
which momentous decisions were given in the Court of Session in a 
case raised by St. Andrew's Session against the Town Council of 
Kdinburgh ! No Committee Psalmody or otherwise can do any 
more than recommend, etc., to the Session. In practice, congrega- 
tions are sometimes asked to vote ; sometimes a body of experts 
advise ; sometimes a well-known organist judges from a short 
leet but the Kirk Session appoints. They are also responsible for 
the organist's salary and for the proper upkeep of the organ. 

Most choirs are voluntary, and the organist has to depend upon 
his own persuasive powers to keep the numbers sufficient. There 
is no law on the subject. There may, of course, be usages which, 
though not prescribed by enactment, have the force of law. 

I am glad that Dr. Bell emphasises the fact that the Order of 
Service rests with the minister alone, and he is responsible not to 
the Kirk Session but to the Presbytery. No minister, however, 
who has the welfare of his church at heart would think of intro- 
ducing drastic changes without consulting his elders in a friendly 
way. Most congregations prefer the " old " tunes, i.e., the tunes 
they heard in their childhood. I have known a congregation, e.g., 
convinced that Orlington (1860) was a far grander tune (because 
" older ") than Wiltshire ! It had been sung in the days of their 
childhood. 

It is a sore point between some ministers and organists as to 
who should choose the times for the psalms or hymns. Custom is 
usually followed, and in practice there is never really any difficulty 
where neither the minister nor the organist happens to be stupid ! 
If either or both, there is always some unpleasantness. Quite 
recently a minister reproved his organist from the pulpit for playing 
the " wrong " tune to a certain hymn. The organist went on 
playing the " wrong " tune and as a result was dismissed by the 
Kirk Session at their first meeting, without a testimonial. I leave 
my readers to judge as to who was to blame. The organist did 
not appeal to the Presbytery. 



ORGAN BUILDING IN NEW YORK CITY 105 

Organ Building and Organ Builders of 
New York City. 

By Chas. A. Radzinsky. 



THE following facts have never, I believe, appeared in print 
before. Certainly not in a collected form. Fragmentary as 
the information is, it may prove of interest, and the above 
statement will, I trust, be considered a sufficient apology for the 
appearance of this little contribution to the history of organ building 
in America. 

The first builder of whom we have any definite information, 
was John Geif, who came from Philadelphia Pa. to New York City, 
and in 1802, built an organ for St. George's Church in Beekman 
Street, New York, and in 1810 he built an organ for Grace Church, 
then in Lower Broadway, New York. The Grace Church organ, 
which possessed the handsomest case in America, was destroyed 
by fire three years later. 

Geif also built pianos, and the writer has tuned several of 
these instruments bearing his name, but further than this, no more 
seems to be known of him. 

Thomas Hall, who began business in Philadelphia, came to 
New York in 1820, and having formed a partnership with his brother- 
in-law, Henry Erben, under the name of Hall and Erben, built 
organs for several years. No record of their work seems to have 
been kept, and if any organs were built for New York churches, 
they have completely disappeared. 

In 1824 this firm dissolved partnership, and Henry Erben 
began business on his own account. Erben was borne in 1800, and 
from 1824 till his death in 1884, practically commanded the best 
trade of New York City. He was without doubt the most eminent 
builder of his time, and was admittedly a fine mechanic and a master 
organ builder, his organs being considered the best, as to workman- 
ship, mechanically and tonally. 

During his long and honourable career, he built 146 organs for 
New York City alone, beside several hundred organs which were 
scattered all over the United States. His masterpiece was un- 
doubtedly the great organ in Trinity Church, Wall Street, New 
York. This organ was built in 1846, under the direction of Dr. 
Edward Hodges, formerly of Bristol, England, and was unique in 
many ways. The ordinary 8ft. stops were carried down to 16ft., 
the 4ft. to 8ft. and so on, in the Great Organ. The organ has 3 



106 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS* 



manuals, 31 stops, and only 1 pedal stop, but that one stop was a 
32ft. open diap. of wood. A solo organ of 7 stops has since been 
added, by Krben in 1869, and the organ till the beginning of 1907 
was as Erben left it, save for some new reeds and some alteration 
of the action. This, after daily use for over 60 years, speaks .volumes 
for Erben's work. In 1907 the organ was mechanically reconstruc- 
ted by Hook and Hastings, of Boston, Mass. The pipes were re- 
tained, and not altered in any way. This organ is noted for its 
grand tone, and is not surpassed by any in New York City. Erben 
was distinguished by his unswerving fidelity to his work, and also for 
his plain speech. He met many reverses latterly, and died a poor 
man. The business was taken over by L. C. Harrison, a former 
employe, and he having removed from New York, little is left to 
remind one of the greatest builder of his time but his organs. 

Thomas Hall, in the meantime, had entered into a partnership 
with a party named La Bagh, and they built many organs under 
the name of Hall and I/a Bagh, but the quality of work was not 
like the former standard when Hall and Erben were together. 
Later on, about 1865, Mr. James Kemp was admitted to the firm, 
and on Mr. Hall's death, in 1877, the firm was known as La Bagh 
and Kemp. Among organs built by this firm were those in Baltimore 
Cathedral, St. Thomas P. E. Church, Church of -the Strangers, 
and Trinity Chapel, the last three in New York. About 1885 the 
firm gave up business. 

Richard M. Ferris was another old time builder, and during 
his life time built many good, plain, and substantial instruments. 
Among them being organs for Calvary Baptist Church, New York ; 
Broadway Tabernacle, New York ; Brick Presbyterian Church, 
New York ; and All Souls' Unitarian Church, New York. Later on 
Ferris was in partnership with L. U. Stuart, a relative by marriage. 
Mr. Ferris died 40 years ago, and his business was discontinued 
as he left no one capable of carrying it on. 

Another old and fine builder was Thomas Robjohn, who 
with his brother William, had been in the employ of Gray and 
Davison, in London, England. Robjohn built several organs, all 
of them of artistic construction, but he was hampered for lack of 
funds, and was accustomed to do organ work in churches where 
he could, putting up a work bench or benches as he needed. He 
was probably the most accomplished mechanic the writer ever 
knew, either in wood or metal, and a most finished voicer. Among 
organs built by him are those in the South Reformed Church, New 
York ; St. John's Chapel, New York ; and the Wesley an Church, 
Troy, New York. The organ in the South Reformed Church was 
noted for having the first independent pedal of 7 stops ever built 
in New York City. 



ORGAN BUILDING IN NEW YORK CITY 107 

During the Civil War, Mr. U. C. Burnap, then organist of the 
Church, imported a Vox Humana, and had it placed in this organ. 
This also was an innovation, as it was the first stop of the kind 
to be used here. This organ also had a pneumatic action, but of 
what type I have never heard. On Rob John giving up business 
as a builder, both he and his brother William were in the employ of 
Odell and Company, until the death of both of them. Thomas 
died in 1875 and William in 1879. 

In 1834, George Jardine, who was a relative of the Jardines of 
Manchester, England, began his career as an organ builder in 
New York. Later he associated his four sons with him, and on his 
death, about 1880, two grandsons were admitted to the firm. For 
over 60 years this firm built organs, and their work is to be found 
all over the United States. Of a cheaper grade, there was a great 
demand for their work, and many large organs came from their 
factory. They were particularly famous for fine case work. In 
1900, on the death of three members of the firm, it went out of exist- 
ence, the remaining member being now with a firm in the West. 

In 1840, or thereabouts, Mess r s. L. U. Stuart and Brother, 
began business, and built many organs of medium size and fair 
workmanship. One of the larger being for Broadway Tabernacle, 
New York ; and one for Holy Trinity P.E. Church, New York. 
Richard M. Ferris, above mentioned, was associated with the 
Stuarts for a short time. The Stuarts are, I believe, still in business 
in a small way in Albany, New York. 

In 1859, John H. and*Cales S. Odell, who had been employed 
for some years by Stuart Brothers, above mentioned, began business 
in a small way, at 163, Seventh Avenue, New York. In a short time 
they had attained a commanding position in the trade, due to the 
artistic excellence of their work mechanically and tonally 
and to the maintenance of the high standard they had set. This 
firm continued until 1892, when on the death of Mr. C. S. Odell, his 
son, William H., and nephew, George W. were admitted to the 
firm, and in 1900, on the death of John H. Odell, the two survivors 
formed the new firm, which still continues. During a long and 
honourable business career, from 1859 to 1907, this firm here built 
over 200 organs for New York City alone, besides 500 for other 
parts of the country, all of the highest type of excellence. Their 
most important organs are those in the Temple Emmanuel, St. 
Nicholas Dutch Reformed Church, Second Christian Science 
Temple all of New York, and the First Baptist Church of Newark, 
NJ. All of 4 manuals each. At the present time this is the only 
firm of organ^builders in New York proper. 

In 1872, Mr. H. I,. Roosevelt began organ building in West 
18th Street, New York, and until his death in 1886, he built many 
important instruments. His work was marked by great excellence 
and artistic finish, and he undoubtedly exercised a great and 



108 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 

beneficial influence on the trade, for he was an organ enthusiast of 
the first magnitude, and his death was certainly a loss to all. Among 
his larger organs were those in Garden City Cathedral, 4 manuals 
and 115 stops ; Grace P.K. Church, New York, 4 manuals and 71 
stops ; and Calvary P.B. Church, New York. On the death of 
Mr. Roosevelt, his brother Frank took over the business, arid 
continued it until 1893 on a larger scale. During his control of it, 
he built the organ for the Auditorium, Chicago, S.A., 4 manuals and 
107 stops ; M.E. Church, Denver, Colorado, 4 manuals and 68 
stops, and many others. In 1893 Mr. Frank Roosevelt retired 
from business, and his patents, stock, etc., were purchased by 
the Farrand and Votey Company, of Detroit, Mich. 

About 1850 Mr. Alexander Mills began the building of small 
organs in New York, and so continued for many years, and while 
still living is not actually engaged in building organs. None of 
his organs were large, but all bore a good reputation. 

Probably the oldest family of organ builders in New York, is 
that of Davis and Son. In 1798, Morgan Davis, of London, who 
had been in the employ of Broadwood, of London, piano-makers, 
came to New York and made pianos until 1835. On his death, 
his son, William H. Davis, took control of the work, and in 1840, 
he built his first organ, which is still doing duty in St. Lucip Church, 
Jersey City, N.J. The first large organ he built, was for Calvary 
P.K. Church, New York, and contained Barker's pneumatic lever, 
the first in America. A curious feature of this organ was a conceit 
of the rector's, who had the draw stops arranged in the form of a 
cross. Mr. William H. Davis died in 1888, and was succeeded by 
his older son, Albert B. On the death of the latter, a younger son, 
Mr. Henry L. Davis, became the head of the firm, and now has 
admitted his son to membership, thus making four generations en- 
gaged in musical instrument making without a break. During the 
career of this firm, they have built many organs of medium size, 
and are still doing a safe and conservative business. 

Another old timer in the organ business in New York was 
Francis X. Kngelfreid, who came to New York in 1853, and until 
1875, when he died, built a number of organs, which were of fine 
tone, but not satisfactory mechanically. They were constructed on 
the German system, viz., individual pallet chests, with tracker 
and roller action, box bellows, with stirrup and strap blowing 
apparatus, and were generally 50 years behind the times. His sons, 
Charles and George, were employed by Roosevelt as voicers, and 
were considered among the best in the trade. Engelfreid's largest 
work was the organ in St. Vincent de Paul R.C. Church, New York, 
and in the R.C. Church of the Redeemer, New York. 

The last of the New York organ builders to be mentioned is 
Reuben Midmer, who came from England when about 16 years of 
age, and served an apprenticeship with Hall and La Bagh, of New 



ORGAN BUILDING IN NEW YORK CITY 109 

York. In 1860 he began for himself in High Street, Brooklyn, 
New York. Mr. Midmer continued building organs until 1888, 
when he retired from active work, and his son, Reed Midmer, took 
control. Mr. Midmer, Senr., died in 1895, and the firm is composed 
of his son as above mentioned. The firm have built many organs 
for all parts of the country, and for Brooklyn alone have built 113. 
Among the more prominent are those in St. Francis Xavier's R.C. 
Church, St. Luke's P.E. Church, Thompkins Aru Congregational 
Church, St. Anthony's R.C. Church all of Brooklyn, and First 
Congregational Church, Paughkeepsie, New York. The firm have 
lately built a large new factory in Merrick, ly.L, New York, and are 
doing a large and important business. 

This closes the first consecutive, though incomplete history of 
organ-building in New York City. The industry seems in late 
years to have drifted away from New York, and have gone to the 
Eastern and Western States. In the recollection of the writer, seven 
firms have gone out of existence in New York alone, leaving but 
one in the City proper at the present time, viz., Odell and Company. 
In Boston, Mass., are several large firms, also in Hartford, Conn, 
and in Chicago, 111., are three at least, some of these being the largest 
in America. This article, however, has to do only with organ- 
builders of New York, and the history of others must wait for a 
future time.

total, 111. 14 couplers. Eight patent pneumatic combination pistons 
govern the whole of the stops of each Manual organ. These 32 pistons 
appear immediately below and in front of each clavier, concentrated 
so as to be at all times within reach by the hands of the performer. 
Six pedals govern the stops of the Pedal organ by means of ventils. 
Six pedals govern and combine in various ways all the other accessories. 
and thus, by one instantaneous operation of the performer, vary the 
effect of the whole instrument at once. Two tremulants, governed 
by pedals (one to the Swell and one to the Solo organ) are applied. 
These tremulants act only upon suitable stops. The general construc- 
tion of the instrument is of the most elaborate and beautiful kind, 
of the best material and workmanship. The internal metal pipes 
consist of 5-9ths lamb-stamp commercial tin and 4-9ths soft lead, 
and the scales of these, as well as those of the front, are suitable to the 
proportions of the building. All the front pipes are made of tin 90 
and lead 10 in 100 parts, and are burnished and polished in the same 



LONDON ORGANS 121 

manner as those of the best Continental organs. The key fittings are 
elegant in design, the combination pistons being plated with gold and 
engine turned. The claviers are made of very thick ivory. The main 
reservoirs in which the compressed air is forced are placed in a chamber 
prepared in a clean and dry locality. * The feeders supplying the air 
by steam power are of the most ample size, and constructed to receive 
their wind from the room above, and not from the locality in which 
they are placed. To carry out this arrangement (of the highest im- 
portance) passages are provided for the wind shafts to and from the 
organ to the chamber in which the main reservoirs ?re placed. The 
main reservoirs deliver their wind to numerous reservoirs in immediate 
connection with the pipes. Organist and Assistant Conductor to

236 DICTIONARY OF ORGANS AND ORGANISTS 
Some French Historical Organs. 

Contributed by Dr. G. Bedart, University of Lille. 

NOTRE DAME DE LA DALBADE, TOULOUSE, FRANCE. 

BUILT by Moitessier, of Montpellier, in 1849, on a tubular system 
of aspirating wind or attenuated air, patented by the builder 
in 1840, under the name of " Abrege Pneumatique " (the 
full description of this patent to be found in " Hinton's Organ 
Construction," page 110). 

This organ opened by Lefebur Wely, of Paris, in 1859, is 
the first in which tubular system was applied, and lasted with 
its original aspirating wind tubular system till 1889, having 
performed a 40 years' career ! It was a masterpiece of joinery ; 
but the pistons, running into cylinders bored in wood pieces, did 
not remain air-tight with time, and caused numerous ciphering 
and a great loss of blowing power. When this quite historical 
organ, the first of all tubular organs, was overhauled and enlarged 
to 54 speaking stops, by Theodore Puget, of Toulous'e, this builder 
put Barker levers to each manual, and electro pneumatic pedal in 
1889 (two swell boxes and pneumatic drawing for stops). 



CHURCH OF ST. VOLUSIEN Foix IN THE DEPARTEMENT 
OF ARIEGE, SOUTH FRANCE. 

Twenty-eight speaking stops by Firmis, a schoolmaster in 
Hauterive, near Toulouse ; built in 1868, with tubular pneumatic 
system (tubes starting from the keyboard) supplying 6 inches wind 
to the pneumatic levers. 

This organ is also an historical one. The swell compartment 
was on show during the Paris exhibition in 1867, and Mr. Henry 
Willis was much struck with this system, and turned his energies to 
developing an improved form of tubular work. 

The Foix organ is actually in good action, no structural 
repair has been done since its erection, but its action is rather slow 
compared to modern tubular, and it is a great wind-eater. 

It must be noticed that M. Peschard, when performing his 
electro -pneumatic trials, 1864, had also tried to move the valve of 
pneumatic lever by tubular action with compressed air. 



ST. FRANCOIS XAVIER OF PARIS. 

Sixty-six speaking stops, 3 manuals ; built in 1878 by Firmis 

(the builder of tubular organ in Foix, 1868), associated with Percy. 

This fine organ has its original system of tubular action ; 



FRENCH HISTORICAL ORGANS 237 

Cavaille Coll only introduced a pneumatic lever for controlling the 
mechanical tracker action, opening the valves, and admitting wind 
into the tubes. 

Originally this organ possessed tubular action to drawing stops, 
with interchangeable combinations, but actually these combinations 
do not work very well, and are not very much used. 

The voicing is by Ferat, and the organ a very good one, but 
it is a great wind consumer, and needs five men for blowing. 

The Organist is Adolphe Marty, the highly reputed blind 
professor of organ in National Institution for Young Blind Scholars, 
of Paris. His name ought to be remembered as the first of 
Parisian organists to prove that tubular action was quite com- 
patible with an artistic playing of the organ, as well as with the 
Barker lever system. 

When the three- manual organ of the Blind Institution was 
restored in 1897, Marty obtained, against the dicta of his Parisian 
colleagues, the adoption of the tubular system, which was added 
by Puget, of Toulouse, the pioneer of tubular in France. 



ST. MICHEI/S, DIJON. 

This small organ (16 stops) is also a remarkable one. It was 
built in 1882 by Gheys, on the tubular system, and contains an 
undivided wind chest. The Austin wind chest device for drawing 
stops and moving the valves corresponding to each pipe, is only 
a slight modification of Ghey's system. 

This organ had not been repaired in 1911, and was in 
perfect action. 

ST. LAURENT PARISH CHURCH, SALON, NEAR MARSEILLES. 

This Church possesses the " Dean " of all electric organs in the 
world, for not only was it the first built with electro-pneumatic 
transmission (1866) by Peschard in collaboration with Barker, but 
actually in 1912 forty-six years after its erection is in good 
order, working upon the primitive electro-pneumatic device ! 

This quite historical organ is a two-manual of 28 speaking 
stops. The electro-magnet governs the small valve of pneumatic 
lever put outside the chest. 

In the cleaning of 1904, M. Franc, the organist, preserved all 
the electric part just as it was affixed by Peschard and Barker, only 
refitting new copper needles where damaged in the quicksilver 
contacts. Before this cleaning, the organ had been devoutly kept 
in good survey by the organist M. Payen ; therefore, we are in- 
debted to these gentlemen for preserving in good order the first 
electric organ built in the world. 

It is an intact proof of the excellence of Peschard-Barker 
system, although fitted with quicksilver contact, and requiring a 
heavy consumption of electricity 6-10ths ampere by 8 volts for 
each key,
